    Isn't it glycogen (sp) store that you lose in the first week?

    Yes most of the loss in the first week is a mix of glycogen and water and hence the big first loss.

    Hence very little of it will be fat but you need to get rid of the glycogen first and then you are cooking fat for fun.

    Yep, as others say, most of it is water...but..scientifically, about 3.5+lbs should be fat, then what remains will be about 1/4 glycogen and 3/4 water.

    Week 2 onwards will be mainly fat, unless there's still a bit of water weight to go. None of the weight will be glycogen though
