Is it possible to lose 28 pounds or 12kg in one week?!

Question: Is it possible to lose 28 pounds or 12kg in one week!?
FYI: I am not doing this I am asking to prove a point to someone!.

No I would think it's pretty impossible not to mention dangerousWww@Answer-Health@Com

It's not possible by any normal weight loss methods!. Even if you starved yourself or became very ill, you probably wouldn't lose more than 5 - 6kg in this time (about 12 pounds)!.

Sometimes you hear of this sort of weight loss over a short period of time in people doing extreme endurance activities, or who are exposed to extreme conditions (eg someone lost at sea)!. In these cases most of the weight loss is due to fluid loss!.

I once lost 10kg in one week, but this was because I gave birth at the start of that week LOL!!Www@Answer-Health@Com

If you are extremely obese, then massive weight loss can be done!.!.!. however, there is no way to lose 28 pounds in one week if you are only slightly overweight, eating correctly, and not over exercising!.

If someone loses 28 pounds in a week, they are either taking diet pills, exercising too much, or eating too little!.

Weight loss should be gradual!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Not thru diet and exercise!. The only way I can see a person doing that is a survival situation - strenous activity, exposure to elements, little to no food and water!. Www@Answer-Health@Com

Not sure it is possible or not but no one should try to do this!. It is unhealthy for one to try this!. One pound a week is a good goal to set and obtain!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Yes,it's possible depending on the body's metabolism!. Metabolism may differ from one person to another!. Good cardio, better metabolism, and a low calorie but healthy diet!Www@Answer-Health@Com

I am not sure, but you probably can in a very unhealthy way!!!, when I was wrestling I had to drop (keyword DROP) like 25 pounds in 3 days and I did it but I felt like I was going to die because I was so physically drained!!!Www@Answer-Health@Com

if the 28 pounds was liquid, perhaps a diurectic would cause you to excrete that much excess liquid!. A health professional would be able to prescribe an appropriate diurectic!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

I lost weight quick using pink patch, I dropped 9 pounds in 2 days, I think there still having a free trial you can find it here,


hope this helps,Www@Answer-Health@Com

Sure, but you'd have to be dead and decomposing!.

The only person who would be able to lose that amount of weight healthily would be a person who was well over 600 pounds!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Only by surgery!.
Most doctors agree 2 lbs (1kg) is a good pace per week!. Don't forget DIet AND Excercise AND Change in eating habits!. all 3 are needed!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Perhaps if you weighed 500 lbs!.!.!.
You can only lose a small percentage of your weight in such a short period of time!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

I don't think it's possible, not healthfully anyways!. Three pounds I think was the max healthy amount of weight one could lose in a week!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

Yes its possible!. I've seen people on the biggest loser lose like 30 or more pounds the first week of the show!.Www@Answer-Health@Com

I think its possible!. My roommate is a physical trainer and he has all sorts of tricks!. Is it healthy!? Absolutely not!. Www@Answer-Health@Com
