Lie on the Internet? Who would ever do that? I was already highly insulin sensitive and likely leaning on hyperthyroid before beginning low carb, I lost my appetite completely, struggled to eat 1.4k calories most days on vlc. I was urinating a lot, regardless of electrolyte consumption. My job isn't sedentary, and I commute by bike 16 miles to work. That, being fueled by fat was a nightmare. I wouldn't discount being violently ill after vlc, I certainly felt that way. If you ask me to explain HOW I lost that much weight in 7 days, I wouldn't be able to offer a sound scientific explanation, but it did happen. Weight stabilized after the first few weeks though, so I did gain some back after my metabolism down regulated itself to match my current lack of calories. Health got a bit better before it got worse, but oh well.
I've always been able to easily lose weight, never gain
