Not particularly: The water is ok/good. Rapid loss of weight without some use of muscles will tend to result in loss of muscle as much/more than fat. It's hard to have a sustained result if you do habits that you aren't going to keep doing. ALso, a diabetic will have metabolism problems with major fasting (hypoglycemia, acidosis, etc.)
