What is a safe amount of weight to lose in a month?
Your rate of weight loss depends on your current body composition. Obese people tend to lose weight faster in the first few weeks of a nutrition and exercise program, as their bodies deflate due to losing a combination of water weight and fat. As you begin to put on more muscle, you may find your pants are fitting better, but you are not losing weight very fast. That's ok. Overall, your improved health and losing inches off your body is a better indication of success than weight lost.
Like others said 1-2 pounds per week is the best. You tend to gain weight back quicker if you lose a lot at one time. It's more unrealistic I guess. You definetly want to loose it in a safe way too though, diet pills are only temporary weight loss and that's if they even really work. You can do if you just set your mind to it!
