    Doc had me as insulin resistant/borderline diabetic now no longer applies...
    ditto various other medical issues...

    Not to be nasty but I'm skeptical of your claim. Short of liposuction, not sure how one can drop 12Kgs in 15days. Unless you are talking severe weight at 250kg+.

    I don't mind you being skeptical in the least, whatever floats your boat...However a good part of the initial rapid weight loss would've been fluid loss...
