Unless there was medical intervention (such as liposuction) these claims look bogus. Losing 130 lbs. in 42 days equates to over 3 lbs. per day loss. (And the notion that "20 lbs. is water" is ludicrous.) In order to lose weight, you need to lose body fat, period. To burn 1 lb. of body fat requires 3500 calories above and beyond the work needed to burn the energy in a day's worth of food. At three lbs. per day this is 10,500 --PER DAY. Even at 1000 cals / minute (which is pretty extreme, maybe not even possible for someone in bad shape) this would mean 10 1/2 hours of medium to heavy cardio, daily. Sorry, I just don't buy it. Show me the daily caloric intake / expenditure / weight.
tominreston, I completely agree with you.
Articles like this just put vegetarians and vegans up for ridicule. This article cannot be taken seriously.
A 130 pound weight loss in 42 days defies anyone's intelligence regarding nutrition and science.
