Fast weight loss strains heart?
I told a friend that I have a goal of losing 50 pounds in the next 5 months. She told me today that if you lose more than 1-2 pounds a week, you'll strain you're heart and it is not good. Is this true? it kinda scared me to think that is true. I would think having this extra fat on me would be worse. what is realistic? I am big enough that 10 pounds a month is doable. I have consistently lost 12 pounds a month before.
Also, I am not really hung up on the actual pounds lost , it is just a goal. I care more about body fat loss. Is it unsafe to lose body fat that quickly? doesn't make sense to me.

I'm too stubborn to give up so I keep on trying.
