    I lost 3 kg in 8h on a particularly hot bike ride in France several years ago. But let's be clear - 'weight' loss like this (and your's) is nothing more than dehydration. Fat does not clear from the body that quickly

    I'm sure there will be a few people with diseases & on things like chemo who can state some startling reductions too - but again, no one would really be that pleased about that.
    How to find a dentist.
    1. Get recommendations from friends/family/neighbours/etc.
    2. Once you have a short-list, VISIT the practices - dont just phone. Go on the pretext of getting a Practice Leaflet.
    3. Assess the helpfulness of the staff and the level of the facilities.
    4. Only book initial appointment when you find a place you are happy with.

    Sounds like you need to change the batteries in your scales or see the doctor about the physics-defying medical condition you've developed.

    Food poisoning was alarmingly effective.

    However, personally, I've gone to a healthy weight and stayed there without any other special effort than eating mostly whole food vegan. I'm not sure about everyone else, but these things seem to suit me.
