Can lose weight and fast be healthy if done right?

Fast weight loss is unhealthy because it can slow your metabolism and it will make you start burning muscle (from what I understand so far).

So my question is, Can fast weight loss be healthy if while cutting your calories you still separate to 5-6 meals a day to keep your metabolism up; While also going to the gym everyday working different muscle groups every other day, while still doing a strong aerobic workout every day?

    Honestly I’d say just try going vegan for a month. I shed 10 lbs a week when I first started going vegan. You can go back to meats and dairy but to initially lose a lot of weight healthily try it out. You’d be surprised at how many calories you gain daily just from dairy fats and meat fats unless you’re eating lean meats like turkey all the time.

    Good Luck!

    You should read the reviews of Fat Burning Furnace here:

    It has a completely different take on exercise than what you mentioned – a much easier one – that is also focused on keeping your metabolism high.

    You’re right about the meals – it is a good idea to separate your meals into 5-6 meals a day to keep your metabolism up.

    Best of luck!

    I stuck relegiously to it for 3 months and lose 7 pound. I have quite a lot to lose so i thought i would lose more.The main problem was i ended up with too much uric acid in the blood and now my joints are painful but im going to try fast tract hypnosis. Keeping my fingers crossed.My friend also tried it and only lost 3 pound in a month.
    edit this is something i read
    I should know. I’m an idiot.

    I bought the Fat Loss 4 Idiots program a few years ago (Actually, I think it was called “Weight Loss 4 Idiots” then). I was tempted by their claim that I could “lose 9 pounds in 11 days” by “eating foods that I choose”. I was excited to fork over my money and begin my journey to weight loss success.

    What happened? Well, when I tried to select my foods, I was presented with a list of food choices, many of which I didn’t like. Despite what they’ll tell you in the advertisements, this is a high protein low carb diet. And I’m a vegetarian. There were many “fake meat” products to choose from, but I don’t like those either.

    Still, I thought that I might be able to substitute foods that I did like and somehow apply the principle of the diet. I didn’t like what I saw. Other review sites will tell you that you get to eat “4 square meals a day” on the Fat Loss 4 Idiots program. But this isn’t entirely true. You do get to eat four meals a day. However, the “meals” consist of one food only. How much of any one food can a person eat? Not much.

    What about all the additional information that comes with the program? There was not a single piece of information on that site which I hadn’t already heard from a free source.

    Fat Loss 4 Idiots only works because it is a very low calorie, low carb diet. However, it’s just that. A diet. It doesn’t teach you how to properly eat so that you don’t gain weight when you go off the diet. It’s likely that this is just a temporary solution.
    The weight will come back.

    The reality is that losing weight permanently isn’t easy and it doesn’t happen overnight. I know that’s not a popular sentiment, but it’s the truth. You are much better off making healthy changes over time that become a permanent part of your life.

    Shannon Tani is a former fattie, who weighed over 220lbs. She has currently lost over 70lbs. One day she realized that people would rather hear dieting advice from someone who’s “been there, done that” than a boring old doctor who’s never been fat a day in his life. So she started the website Better Off Fat to share her experiences and ideas.
