Too good to be true? Yes and no. You can lose 10 Lb of body weight in two days, but it won’t be fat, and it won’t stay off. The way this approach generally works is to provide almost no calorie intake, forcing the body to use up stored energy. As part of this process, the body burns of Glycogen (the carbohydrate store in the muscles and liver), and each gram of Glycogen is stored with several grams of water. Losing the full 10 Lb is likely to be tough, but depleting your Glycogen stores should cause a drop of 5-6 Lb. As soon as you start eating again, this weight will come back, as you’re unlikely to have lost any significant body fat. For a slower, but more effective approach, see The Runners Diet.
