Is it possible to lose 5 pounds per week?


Answer by  Dawne (69)

It is possible but not advisable or smart. Generally weight loss of 1/2 pound to 1 pound a week is safe and the weight will stay off.


Answer by  Gabriel (2146)

Yes, by strictly restricting your food intake and exercising. But you are unlikely to keep weight off when you return to normal eating habits, and it can cause health problems.

It's possible, but consider long term effects. Can you sustain this weight loss? Most experts agree that healthy weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week.

Yes, weight loss will happen when calories consumed are less than calories burned. Caution: rapid weight loss is uaually followed by rapid weight gain.


Answer by  Ariel (118)

It is possible. Drink plenty of water and do at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise every day, such as running, walking, or riding a bike.

Yes, it is possible the first week or so to lose 5 pounds or more depending on your starting weight, but remember most of that will be water weight.
