Most consider it unhealthy because they think you must be starving yourself to get that way, and once you start eating again you will probably gain it right back. If you can still eat healthy foods until you're full and have snacks and still lose weight, then I'd say it's because your body naturally wants to dump the weight.
My hubby, myself and my 11 yo son all changed our eating habits to cut out breads, rice, potatoes and pasta for two weeks. I lost 7 lbs, my son lost 9 lbs. and my hubby lost 4 lbs. (he cheated!). We all ate healthy foods: lean meats, steamed/fresh veggies, low fat cheese and milk, eggs and lots of water. We rarely felt hungry and if we did we munched on veggies. We feel more energy while losing the weight than we did before, and we're making lifetime dietary changes so the weight won't come back.
