It's certainly: possible to gain "3 pounds overnight" if someone eats very salty food and/or has a problem with fluid retention. This is water weight, not body mass.

Please advise if it's good for a teenager to lose weight by exercising and reducing calorie intake by half?
Depends: Certainly nothing wrong with exercising but i would be cautious about the calorie reduction. If the teen were eating far above average to start with, then a 50% reduction may be ok. But if the 50% reduction results in caloric intake far below daily baseline needs, then that would be a problem. See a physician for any further questions. ...Read more

What are some tips for maintaining weight once you've lost a good amount? I'm eating a paleo diet but want to introduce regular food once I hit my goal. I find maintaining to be the hardest part.
Diet: Losing weight is difficult but I believe that keeping weight off is more difficult. Calories do count and if you want to maintain your new weight you will have to restrict your daily calorie intake to about 1000-1200 calories unless you perform extremely vigorous work in your daily activities. I feel it's very worthwhile to meet with a dietician who will evaluate you and recommend a proper diet. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
From a health and weight loss perspective, is it adviceable to drink water before a meal to reduce hunger (food intake). If yes, how many glasses?
8-16 ounces: It is a good idea to hydrate yourself before meals--especially breakfast. Everything about digestion requires water: saliva, mucus, stomach acid, intestinal secretions, kidney function. It may help to fill your stomach so you are satisfied with less food, but mainly it satisfies the craving for water itself which many people misidentify as hunger. 8-16 ounces at a time is plenty. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
