There's a trade-off here. Depending entirely on your body composition, you'll want to be careful whether you lose fat or muscle (likely a combo of both) in those 5 lbs. Muscle stores the energy our body uses for activities. If you lose the weight close to a big hike, your energy levels may take a hit until your body gets used to its new composition.
