In brief: Yes
However, this is not the healthiest way to lose weight.
The best way to lose weight and keep it off is to change the way you eat and exercise so that the weight comes off slowly, but surely.

Losing 15 pounds in a month is actually harmful and is often just water weight that is quickly regained. There are spandex clothes and "shaper" clothes if you have a social event...then work on losing weight slowly and permanently for best health. Generally a pound or two a week is best.

In brief: Please re-assess
your goal. For most people that is too steep a rate of loss.
If you want lasing results - slow the pace. Eat healthfully. Try to eat at least 5 servings of vegetables & 4 of fruit per day. Increase nutritional fiber. Avoid refined sugar & junk carbohydrates. Avoid alcohol, sweetened juices, soda & caffeinated beverages. Aim for 7.5 to 8 hrs of sleep / night. Hydrate w at least 64 oz of water /
