Is it okay to lose over 15 pounds in a month at 5'5'? My doctor told me that I was overweight. I weigh now 120, and was 135 when she told me that. I do not eat breakfast nor lunch, but do not lose like most people. What is wrong with me?
Thanks for posting on the ehealthforum. Ideally one should not lose more than 7-9 pounds in a month as per the guidelines and you have lost the weight a little faster and itâs not good as the body is not able to adjust to such rapid weight changes since the bodyâs metabolism rate is adjusted to the body weight.
You should get your thyroid hormone levels checked as poorly functioning thyroid (hypothyroidism) also contributes to the development of weight gain.
