How Much Weight Can You Lose In Six Weeks?

The New Year has begun, and once again, all over the country, the resolutions are being made. “This year I am going to be more organized,” or “I am going to spend more time de-stressing,” or the most common “I am going to lose weight” and “Improve my health.”

Next, the mad search begins for ways to accomplish this weight loss, and most people want to do it quickly. They search the internet for “How to lose 30 pounds in 6 weeks” or “How much weight can I lose in 6 weeks?”

So, if you are among those who made this type of resolution this year, this article is for you. Today we are going to talk about rapid weight loss vs. gradual weight loss, the pitfalls of crazy diets, medical weight loss interventions, and how much weight you can lose in 6 weeks.

Pros And Cons Of Fast Weight Loss

Losing weight fast may have a lot of appeal, but it can also come with some significant drawbacks. Let’s look at some pros & cons of rapid weight loss.

Pros

  • You see some fast results, and seeing the numbers on the scale drop can be motivating;
  • It can boost your confidence and self-esteem;
  • It is a great short-term solution if you are preparing for an event or need to quickly manage a health issue;
  • Most people feel they can put up or suffer through anything for a short time.

Cons

  • You can lose muscle mass;
  • Your body can suffer from nutritional deficiencies, especially if you follow fad-type or very restrictive diets;
  • Your metabolism can try to compensate (to save you from starving) and slow way down, making it even harder for you to lose weight or maintain your loss;
  • You can experience gallstones, hair loss, dizziness, and other health issues;
  • You can end up in the vicious repeating yo-yo cycle of losing weight superfast, gaining it back, and then losing it again, etc;
  • The process can take a toll on your emotional health, making you feel deprived and frustrated.

What Pitfalls Can You Encounter With Fad Or Restrictive Diets?

These days, you can find countless diets that claim to deliver rapid weight loss, but if you continue to research them, you will find some surprising data. Many lack any science-based evidence, and some are just downright dangerous.

Diets that eliminate entire food groups that contain nutrients that your body needs to function properly are not sustainable long-term and can do more damage than good. Diets that require you to eat pre-packaged food or reduce your calorie intake too much can trigger hormonal shifts, add too much sodium or other artificial ingredients to your diet, and make you feel hungrier and never satisfied.

Changing The Way You Think

If you are serious about losing weight forever, then trying to lose 15 pounds in six weeks or 20 pounds in six weeks should not be your goal.

When you set a timeline for yourself, like many of us do when we “go on a diet,” we have the mindset that the changes we are making are only temporary. The downfall of this kind of thinking is that when this timeline is up, what then? The truth is that most people go back to the way they were eating previously, resulting in the pounds landing right back where they were.

Or worse yet, many people become even heavier than they were before they began their “diet.” One reason this can happen is because their body was trying to compensate for the crazy things they were doing. Our bodies are built to survive, so if our metabolism thinks we are low on food and might starve, it slows down to conserve energy and store fat as a reserve. When they go back to eating like they did before, their metabolism is running slower, making it easier to gain more weight.

Instead of thinking about losing weight in six weeks, make changes to your lifestyle that will promote good health, and the weight loss will be a byproduct of these changes. Changes such as:

  • Consistently make healthier food choices;
  • Prepare your own food from raw ingredients;
  • Avoid processed foods and pre-packaged foods;
  • Avoid unhealthy snacks; do not even have them around;
  • Make physical activity a daily goal;
  • Ensure you get an adequate amount of sleep;
  • Drink enough water;
  • Set small goals that you can achieve, and celebrate when you reach them.

Losing Weight Is Not A Walk In The Park

Unless you are talking about Jurassic Park. You may be familiar with the scene in the 2015 movie where Owens jumps into the velociraptor cage during training to save a fellow employee. He is standing there with his arms outstretched, fending off several of these insane creatures at once. That is how it can feel when you are trying to lose weight. The food cravings, the hunger pangs, the friends calling and telling you to come out and eat cake with them to celebrate a birthday, etc.

As soon as you decide to make big changes, eat healthier, get some exercise, and stop eating junk food between meals or late at night, it becomes almost impossible to do. As soon as you decide to cut out your nightly ice cream snack, all you can think about or want to do is eat ice cream, and it almost torments you.

One of the best things you can do for yourself at this point is to get some professional help. A doctor who has special training and evidence-based strategies can provide you with the help you need to beat these dinosaur-sized challenges that you face and achieve sustainable weight loss.

A Reputable Weight Loss Center Can Help You Achieve Success

At Batash Endoscopic Weight Loss Centers, we understand the challenge our patients face when they set out on a weight loss journey. We also know that each person’s journey is different and requires their own customized plan crafted with their specific circumstances and needs in mind.

We know all about the dinosaurs that our patients feel like they are trying to fend off every day, and we know how to neutralize them to make their journey a little bit easier. Prescription weight loss medication, non-surgical weight loss procedures (Suture Sculpt, Orbera, Spatz3), and a high level of support can help your weight loss efforts count for more, and you will lose weight faster and more efficiently.

We are by your side to help teach and guide you through strategies for exercise, meal planning, and resources for psychological support if needed. Many who have attempted weight loss had no idea what strategies to use or how their bodies would respond to their efforts, so they were not doing the right things and became flustered or depressed at their lack of progress.

Physical activity is essential to your health and maintaining a healthy weight, but this does not mean you need to be grueling away at the gym each day doing crunches. You would be surprised at the number of people who envision this when they hear the word “exercise.” We can help you find activities that require you to move around and that you enjoy. This can be playing tennis, riding bikes, hiking, or even just walking for 20 minutes a day.

One social media blogger confided that she lost weight by walking while listening to her favorite true crime podcast. She would set up her day to get a certain amount of work done and then reward herself by taking a break to “hear what happened next” on the podcast. She would walk around her neighborhood while she listened and looked forward to this time of day.

With the help of Dr. Steven Batash and his expert team at Batash Endoscopic Weight Loss Center, many patients learned that they could lose 30 pounds in 6 weeks after having the Suture Sculpt ESG procedure. This non-surgical procedure is done with no incisions and reduces the amount of available stomach capacity the patient has. This teaches them portion control and helps them stay feeling full longer, promoting weight loss.
