weight loss


Question by  hairfiend (34)

When you lose weight, how much should you lose per week?


Answer by  Gingercakes (920)

At most, a pound and a half a week. Half a pound or one pound a week is a good goal, because most people who lose weight faster just gain it back.

To ensure long lasting results for weight loss it is best that you loose 1 to 2 lbs per week.

Set your goals at a reasonable level. About five pounds a week, more or less, is good. If you lose weight more rapidly, you are in danger of many health problems.

My docotr told me you only should lose 1 kg per month, which would be for four weeks. So you it is 250g each week.

This depends on several factors. If you don't have a regular exercise routine and haven't been eating a proper diet then all of a sudden start doing this you will likely see a loss of 2-5 pounds in the first week or two. After that 1-2 pounds weekly is healthy.

This has been long debated by everyone, from experts to consumer. In my experience, to be successful, your target should be 2 to 3 pounds per week.
