Default Phase One Question

I know that 3500 calories equal 1 pound so how in the heck do some people lose up to 14 pounds in 2 weeks on phase 1? I lost about 8 pounds myself but I'm just wondering how that works. I know I did not cut 28000 (3500 times 8) calories out of my diet or exercise enough to equal that much. Is it because of the glycemic thing? I know you wise chickies probably have the answer so I figured all I have to do is ask
skinny here i come!

Initial weightloss is usually faster because a lot of it is water. It also is affected by whether you were on a diet previously, age, activity level and time of the month. There just is no one size fits all in weightloss!
Change isnít easy. But if you donít change, you stay the same, and whereís the fun in that?
