Okay, I just saw this blurb on TV about a woman (who already looked great to me) who lost 6 pounds in 6 days and 4 inches from her hips and waist. She worked with the trainer from a TV show called Extreme Makeover. I can't remember his name. The food looked fairly plentiful and very healthy (all food groups covered--except the all important chocolate group!). She ate 7 small meals a day, which the trainer recommended for boosting metabolism. She walked the treadmill for an hour a day, and lifted weights four times a week. They didn't say how long she lifted weights, and what exercises she did, though.
I know it's possible to lose 6 lbs. in 6 days when you first start eating better because it's a lot of water weight. What I'm wondering, though, is do you think it's really possible to lose that many inches in such a short time? Do people who just start out lifting often have a drastic loss like that?
