It varies from person to person. It also depends on how much weight you have to lose. A person who is obese might lose 10 pound in the first week. A person who is only a few pounds overweight would lose much less. In any case, weight loss usually slows down after the first week. Aim to lose one to two pounds per week. The healthy amount is considered to be one to two pounds per week.
