How much weight can you lose in 11 days by just drinking water?

On average, a person who fasts, drinking water only, can lose on average between 10-11 lbs. in one week. If the fast is continued (drinking plenty of water), you can lose 7-8 lbs. the second week, 3-4 lbs. the third week and up to 3 lbs. every week thereafter. However, this is, also, dependant on each person's amount of body weight. A person who is already low in body fat can lose less and a person who has more body fat can lose more weight.

Sorry, you would not be able to lose a significant amount of weight in one week, it has been proven unhealthy to lose much more than half a kilogram in a week (that's if you are an ideal weight already) but for an overweight person who has tens of kilos to lose they may be able to lose 1 or 2 kg in a week, but if they are fat, that wouldn't make much of a difference, It takes time!
