I have a friend who is quite overweight, and has been “wanting to lose weight quickly” for the past few years. They have been on numerous fad diets, hunger strikes, diet pills, you name it. Progress has been little to none, but this has not deterred them. They are still adamant, years later, that they need to lose weight quickly. As bizarre as this is, it got me thinking. Perhaps the “slow and steady” method is, in fact, how to drop weight fast.
