A 27-year-old female asked:

If i've been drinking only water for the last month, (no juice, milk, cordial or up & go - due to ibs/fructose intolerant), could that be why i've lost 3kg when my eating habits haven't changed much?

Possible.: BUT 3 Kg is about 25000 cal. That is a loss of about 800 cal/day. Is it possible you were drinking 800cal/day?
