Generally, no. But everyone is different. If you have a heart problem, for example, or other medical problems (even ones you don't know about) losing weight that quickly can complicate them. While losing that much weight in a short amount of time seems wonderful, also remember that usually with that rapid of a weight loss, you are losing water and muscle, not fat. When you gain it back, however, you're usually replacing that loss muscle with even more fat. If you've already lost the weight and want to maintain it, look into weight training. It will get your muscle mass back up again. An increase in muscle mass burns fat.

After 6 days, you would have 64 pounds. After 7 days, you would have 128 pounds. After 8 days, you would have 256 pounds. After 9 days, you would have 512 pounds. After 10 days, you would have 1.024 pounds. After 11 days, you would have 2.048 pounds. After 12 days, you would have 4.096 pounds. After 13 days, you would have 8.192 pounds.
