I am losing weight fast because I am eating low calories, is this good or bad?

Bad if you are eating to little calories. If you are losing more than 1 pound per week you should increase the calories slightly. Dieting to hard will only lead to metabolic damage and weight re gain, so take it slow and make it last

If you're eating about 75% of what you previously did, and cutting out mostly the junk food and sugary stuff, you'll probably lose about a pound or two a week.
That's a safe and sane rate of weight loss. "Fast" weight loss is not such a good idea. Your skin won't shrink as fast as your insides, and it'll wrinkle and sag. Your muscle strength will weaken. You'll be more subject to illnesses, too.

Bad. Caloric restriction leads to the anorexogenic cycle where everything you eat is stored in your fat cells, making you fatter.
Your weight loss is water and muscle.
Low sugar/fructose. That's what you need to restrict as you do alcohol.Source(s): "Fat Chance..." by Dr. Robert Lustig M.D.

That is good, as that would be the expected result.
