Not really advisable: Loosing weight is a product of many factors. Change intake, change in output, and most importantly, lifestyle modification. Commit yourself to lifestyle modification and you will attain the others in a lasting fashion. Good luck!

At what rate do anorexics lose weight?

Dr. Lisa Saponaro
Clinical Psychology 18 years experience
Not healthy: Anorexia is a form of starving the body and should never be looked at as a viable weight loss strategy. It is unhealthy to deprive the body of nutrients and can lead to death. Anorexia requires treatment. Every person with anorexia varies in the speed at which they lose weight but the body will go into preservation mode which may slow down weight loss.

Fast weight loss: Quick weight loss tends to return. Weight loss of 1-2 lbs per week is a reasonable goal, although many people will exceed that their first weeks of diet change.

Diet and exercise: Healthiest way to lose is a well balanced diet and regular exercise. Cut out all sodas and drink water instead. For snacks dont eat sugar filled cookies and such, instead opt for healthy snacks such as fruits, vegetables or even different kind of nuts which can also give you some energy. Get 7-8 hours of sleep at night which is important. Dont eat upto 2 hours before bedtime. Monitor calories.

2 lbs/week optimal: Portion control (use a salad plate instead of a dinner plate, drink a glass of water before each meal to partly fill the stomach; limit fats & high glycemic index carbs; lean meats; eat 4-6 small meals a day instead of 2-3 huge ones' avoid junk/fast food' avoid high-fructose corn syrup. Moderate exercise like walking or pool aerobics will help remove the pounds.
