Is it safe to lose weight this way?

Summers approaching, and I am going to be spending time at a water park soon. I am super self conscious of my body, since I am about 250 lbs. I am going on this 3 day cleanse thing where you drink water infused with cucumber, citrus and mint. You don't eat, just drink. I am also taking dulcolax, since I already have problems pooping. I will be doing the 3 day cleanse, eating only raw fruits and veggies the next 4, still drinking the infusion. And then repeat the following week. I am hoping to drop 20 lbs. Is this bad? I seriously have 2 weeks and don't know another way.

Yes, that's not a good weightloss scheme. You can hurt your body that way.

It won't kill you but it isn't the healthiest way to lose weight.

Of course that's bad.  Do it the right way.  Healthy eating and exercise.  The faster you lose weight, the faster you'll gain it back.  Eat six small meals a day to help your metabolism keep up and exercise.  Use an app if you have to.  I used MyFitnessPal when I was dieting; it helped me keep track of how many calories I was burning.

Really? How? Now I'm a little scared.

Quoting Johariz:

No.

Dribk protein shakes and water exclusively. Take 2-3 multi chewavle vites a day.

60+ grams of protein. That's it.

24-30oz a day every day. You will lose weight.

I Have to do it now for lapband complications. I'm Alive and lose about a lb a day.

i'm big on eating better for yourself and being more active. i plan on losing weight that way when i have my baby. These type of things dont help your metabolism, they dont help you actually become healthier etc. If you were that conscious about your body you should have already taken the initiative to change it. Waiting the last minute and hoping for a miracle by starving and cleansing doesnt seem like a substantial way to drop it and keep it off. Good luck though.
