  1. Get your thyroid checked. Losing a lot of weight fast can sometimes cause hypothyroidism. If you get tested and have hypothyroidism, they can put you on synthroid, and you'll have a normal metabolism again.

  2. Start running. 5K, 10K, just start running regularly. All that cardio will help you maintain your human form, an allow you to have the occasional unhealthy meal without losing your humanity.

Aside from your first point being fatlogic, you've got it all wrong. hypothyroidism is when the thyroid is not producing enough hormone, which can slow down the metabolism and cause weight gain. Synthroid (aka Levothyroxine) is the common treatment. Hyperthyroidism, on the other hand, means the thyroid is producing too much hormone, which can increase the body's metabolism and burn off extra calories, sometimes resulting in weight loss. Anti-thyroid drugs called thyrostatics are used to treat this condition.

2 is good. #1 though: this is fatlogic. Losing weight quickly has absolutely not credible impact on one's thyroid, nor would it have any appreciable impact on weight if it did.

This is why you're being down-voted.
