While it does depend upon your body size and condition, the only way to lose more than a pound per day if by losing water weight. Everyone's body retains water to some degree. By refraining from salt and anything with salt in it, your body will lose water weight. One pound is equal to 3,500 calories. The average person, if they eat nothing every day, cannot lose 3,500 calories per day (meaning 1 pound). But, they can lose excess water weight. Women tend to have more retained water weight than men. A 150 pound woman can lose as much as 10 pounds in 1 week with most being water weight, and a 200 pound man can do the same. This first week of 10 pounds of weight loss is not a part of losing body fat, as only a small portion of the weight loss will be body fat.
