    Maybe youre eating less overall? The only way to lose weight is to burn more calories than you take in... so apart from that I don't know what you're doing. I started cycling in to town instead of driving - lost about a stone in a couple weeks!

    I think you should carefully be watching your weight now... have you been ill? Nervous about things? Getting little sleep?

    Losing weight can be quite welcome, but there are certain conditions that cause unusual weight loss.

    Yeah, maybe it could also be something you're cutting down on/doing more frequently that is making you lose more weight. But still, if you lose dramatically any more weight then it's worth a trip to the doctors.

    Yeah this sounds like the kind of weightloss that will come back and bite you on the ass when you least expect it.
    Eating copious amount of junk food will do your body no good at all, nor your general health in the long term. It's certainly not something to be proud of.

    If you know you have a bad diet, then why are you so chipper about it? You're not gonna be healthy, nor fit so I can't see any real benefit from weightloss of this kind.

    No it doesnt, 1kg of fat weighs the same as 1kg of muscle. Muscle is more DENSE than fat.

    It often takes me quite a while to physically see the changes that happen when I change my diet/exercise pattern. I'm talking months. So maybe your body is changing just as you have started eating junk food.

    It's supposed to be dangerous to lose more than a stone a month... you sure it was a stone? =P That works out at about a pound a day and one pound = 3500 calories...

    When everyone talks about muscle weighing more than fat we are talking about the size in correlation.

    There is nothing wrong in comparing the weight when we are talking size.
