    I am 6ft 1in and 228 lb's if i was to eat around 1500 to 1600 cal's per day what kind of weight could i lose a week like 5-7 pound's?

    Or is that aiming to high?

    On any diet you lose a lot of water in first week . On something like slimming world you can get very good losses (I lost 3.5 this week and have been doing a year) but 5 to 7 pounds every week on any diet not likely and probably not healthy. Hope this helps.

    You wouldnt lose that much even on a VLCD (400 - 600kcals a day) so Id definitely say youre expecting too much.

    You could probably lose that in week 1 but after that maybe around 2 a week?
