Obviously its possible, but probably very difficult and the results might not last. In general with quick fixes it comes back on plus more. The best diets are lifestyle changes that you can stick to for life, not just for 3 months. Then again if you have a chef/personal trainer/motivational speaker/doctor to help you im sure you can also lose 20kg's in 3 months :)

The tv shows are geared for maxiumum results in minimum time!! I try and be a little more realistic and by listening to doctors and health workers, they say 1/2 to 1kg a week is normal. It is not to say that you can't lose weight quicker, but often quick weight loss is not sustainable. You may find that you lose the first 10 kgs really quickly as you will be losing fluid as well as fat and then it should settle down. Don't ever be disheartened by "only" losing 0.1 - 0.5kg each week as a loss is still a loss. I wish you all the best in your weight loss journey!!

It is a known fact that males do lose weight faster and in higher increments then females.

However a 15kg loss in 1 week is not typical and quite unrealistic for most people.

Like everyone says, the longer it takes to come off the longer you tend to keep it off.

My husband lost 30kgs in the same time it took me to lose 13kgs!!! I was so proud (but maybe secretly envious) of him. He is much heavier than me though. I get sick of having to be so diligent with everything that goes in my mouth to lose that 1.5kgs a week when all he has to do it eat regularly and its done!!!

Men hey???!!!... :lol:

Everyone is right. Drs say you should aim for .5 to 1kg weightloss per week, at the very most. Although I love it and watch it religiously, I think shows like Biggest Loser and Overhaul have a lot to answer for. A friend of mine is doing Jenny Craig, and lost 3.5 kgs in her first week. She was so disappointed, I couldnt believe it! She said she was expecting between 7 and 10 kgs in her first week! Unbelievable! We do have to remember that any loss is a good loss, as long as it is achieved in a healthy way (ie not starving or anything, people who do tend to lose a lot of weight on extreme diets really do gain them back quickly) Good luck with the weightloss and be proud of what you can achieve, no matter how little it may seem :P xx

Amy is right! Shows like Biggest Loser and Overhaul do have a lot to answer for. The people in these shows are:
a) very obese - most of them morbidly, so therefore have a lot of weight to lose, and will lose more quite quickly than Mr or Mrs Joe average that only needs to lose say, 25kg or less.
B) In a situation where they quite literally concentrate on losing weight 24 hours a day. There are no outside distractions like Mr and Mrs Joe Average deal with every day - finances, running the house, running the family, work etc.

Unfortunately, people watching these shows do not take these factors into consideration, and then think that losing 8 - 10 kilos in the first week and then 4-6 kilos a week thereafter is normal.
