How Much Weight Can You Lose On A Detox Diet
Unhealthy loss: Fasting is an unhealthy and unsustainable method of weight loss which is not recommended. Any weight that is lost is from water and/or muscle mass loss, and the weight will be gained back as soon as the fast is ended. Moreover fasting can lead to serious complications such as dehydration, kidney failure and other dangerous complications. See your physician to discuss healthy ways to lose weight. ...Read more

Depends on Calories: A liquid vs solid diet should not really matter as weight loss is a change in calories in (diet) vs calories out (activity) from your current behaviors. Liquids may contain less calories than solid food intake and thus help but make sure you are receiving good nutrition. A free website like loseit.Com can help you calculate and track your calories and activity to safely lose weight. Best wishes. ...Read more
Difficult: Low-carb diet is likely to promote weight loss, at least at first, but risky. Weight loss may or may not continue long term, depending on your commitment to following the eating plan. If you abandon the low-carb diet and return to your former eating habits, you may regain any lost weight. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Can you tell me how much weight will i lose switching to a vegetarian diet and consuming 300-600 cals?
Depends : I'm not sure if you mean you will only be taking 300-600 cal of vegetarian food for the day which is too low of a caloric intake and not recommended on any diet. The minimum caloric requirement on a very low calorie diet is about 800 cal, mostly from proteins and fat. That will result in at least 2 to 3 pounds of fat loss a week in a ketogenic state. ...Read more

Good calories + move: There's a good app called "lose it!" that helps you determine your daily caloric requirements based on how much & how quickly you want to lose. It takes into account your exercise too. You really have to move in order to lose, so even just walking every day is good & costs you nothing. A low glycemic diet will give you the best quality calories. Organic is best if you can afford it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It depends : A lot of weight loss depends on your weight age and gender as well as the type of diet you're following. On the south beach diet which is a hypoglycemic ketogenic diet for most part the typical weight loss is about 2 to 3 pounds a week. However if you are heavy, and exercising while dieting i've seen as much as 5 to 10 pounds a week for the first few weeks as you lose weight the weight-loss slows down. ...Read more

Weight loss: I wouldn't think of a detox or cleanse as a way to lose weight in a healthy way. The 'detox' uses the idea that your body is full of toxins when in fact your organs are responsible for eliminating extraneous substances. If you go on any deprivation diet, you will probably lose a little weight, just because you are restricting calories. It is very likely you will regain this weight. ...Read more
Depends: It only helps if you take the sign that you feel full and eat less calories. If you take three large milkshakes each day because you are stressed you will still gain weight. Like all diet aids it is only an "aid" you need to make an effort to eat less and walk, exercise more. In this way it can help by making you feel full so that you will hopefully be able to eat less, more healthy food. ...Read more
Not necessarily: You need to restrict caloric intake and exercise to burn more calories to lose weight. Low carbohydrate diet is marginally better, but you can gain weight on a low carbohydrate diet if you eat fats and proteins in an amount that more than makes up for the carbohydrate deficit. ...Read more
