Because I think that pure speculation untethered by actual data is always helpful, I have a theory to share. Since about 60 percent of the body is composed of water, the actual amount of water your body needs to have to function well decreases as your body weight decreases. For example, assuming the 60 percent number is true for you - At 200 pounds, your body will have 120 pounds of water. At 100 pounds, it would only have 60 pounds of water. So water loss is going to decrease your weight, and some of that water loss will be permanent, as you no longer need it to function. But - I am a big proponent of staying hydrated. (Radical, I know.) So, I will not wear a sweat suit to work out or take diaretics for weight loss, for example. I just drink lots of water and focus on what I can do to achieve fat loss and trust the water will take care of itself. And drive me crazy along the way.
