Taking a bit of carbs about 50 or 60 grams a day can cause u to slow down weight loss? And is it good to loose about 1 kg in 6 days ? Is it good speed

Taking a bit of carbs about 50 or 60 grams a day can cause u to slow down weight loss? And is it good to loose about 1 kg in 6 days ? Is it good speed

Actually, 50 to 60: grams of carbs daily is already pretty low. The problem with going too low on carbs is it makes a diet really hard to stick to and you can feel fatigued/brain fog with too few calories and carbs. A good formula is: calories=12X body weight in lbs; protein=1 gm/lb; carbs=0.9-1.25 gm/lb; fat=the remainder of calories. 1 kg/2 lbs per week is a little fast. Best to go at pace you can maintain!! ...Read more

Is going from 79 pounds to 105 in five months a healthy weight gain? And for someone five one what would a healthy weight be at age 22 not pregnant

Is going from 79 pounds to 105 in five months a healthy weight gain? And for someone five one what would a healthy weight be at age 22 not pregnant

Yes, it's fine: It sounds completely healthy to me. In fact, weighing 79 pounds if you are 5'1" would definitely be underweight. We often estimate ideal weight for women by saying you should weight 100 pounds at 5 feet, and then add 5 pounds per inch, so 105 pounds for 5'1" would be perfect. I hope you gained the 20+ pounds through eating more of good, healthy food. ...Read more
