How I lost 5 lbs in one day.

Congrats on trying to lose some weight, but i must say what you did is not healthy, nor was it as successful as you think. You starved yourself all day, and then lost some water weight. You have to expend 3500 calories in order to burn a pound of body fat, so unless you managed to expend 17,500 calories today, which I know you didnt, you sure as hell did not burn 5 pound of body fat. Sorry bud, do some more reasearch and learn how to burn the fat properly, good luck.

1. Set a realistic goal: 1-2 pounds per week. Which means you're easily looking at a year to safely lose those 80 extra pounds.
2. Don't fixate purely on weight - Bodyfat percentage is much more important, and is quickly highlighted by your waist measurement.
3. Use a site like http://www.fitday.com to track what you eat. See how that diet impacts your weight/fat for a few weeks, then adjust it as needed (500 calories more/less per day equals one pound per week).

I'm sorry, the first thing that popped in my head when i saw this thread title was "Ok, he took a really big dump".
But seriously, if i remember right doesn't body weight fluxuate by almost 5 lbs during the day? If so, couldnt it just have been pushing your body to the lower extent of that range by not eating and then dehydrating yourself?
Not to say it's not possible. As a poster above said- biggest loser people do it- though they tend to be alot heavier.
