Should I be worried or glad about really rapid weight loss?



Recommended Posts

I hate to ask this question because it seems so crazy, but...I am 6 months post gastric bypass and had been losing at what seemed a "normal" rate. Then I upped my calories to 1000 to 1100 a day and now I'm losing really fast. I've lost over 8 pounds in a week. I know that mathematically it is impossible to burn 3500 calories a day, so how and why am I losing weight so fast?? Should I be worried, or enjoy it?

Every time I've had a stall I've broken it by increasing my calories. If you feel healthy, I'd enjoy it! Good luck.

I think that's fantastic and counterintutitive. Let me ask, did you increase your calories and your Protein or just your calories?

Just calories. Protein has stayed the same. Added in avocado as a healthy fat, and a few more carbs.

So much has to do with Fluid shifts, related to glycogen in the muscles, salt intake, etc. Don't be worried if you gain a few next week - just fluid rebalancing. Your overall weight loss seems fine, so keep up the good work!

      So my surgery anniversary date is on the 24th of this month, but I had my 1-year follow up early with my surgeon this morning (I have another 1-year followup at the hospital on Monday to get my bloodwork and labs done).
      Anyhoo...my surgeon was very pleased with my results (and so where the office staff apparently, because 3 of the front desk ladies came by my exam room to give me props/high fives/generally gawk at me).
      But get this: he asked if I would be willing to come in for a future photoshoot so that I could be on a poster! And I was all, ummmm....no thanks, LOL.

      Today was a really tough day and I turned to food (and a watered down glass of wine). The interesting part was that I felt REALLY full after eating half my go to cheat snack, tortilla chips with cheese. So the GBP is doing its job!

      The only way I can tell that I'm losing weight is from the scale and my clothes "getting bigger".
