thats unhealthy. Apparently if you want to keep the weight off, you have to lose it slowly and properly...otherwise its just a crash diet.

Gradual weight loss is key to losing it healthy without sacrificing bone density, muscle mass, etc. Also, losing it slower increases the body's ability to keep it off long-term. Why do you think there are many boxers, wrestlers, etc. who balloon up after a fight/match? Ricky Hatton is a perfect example of how NOT to lose weight.

Shoot to lose 1/2% of body fat per week for long-term results.

Keep it up Dave! BTW, you took some before pics right? Always good to show it off after you've done it, haha!

Yeah, that's quite a bit different, 14 pounds of water is a good cut, but it's not like you gain 30-50 pounds in a week or 2 after a match, keep it on, then have to lose it in 3 months to be ready for your next fight/match, that's just not healthy.
