What is a safe amount of weight to lose in a month?

  • I want to lose weight, but have been cautioned to do it in a safe way-- so what is a safe amount of weight to lose in a month? or do I just need to be losing it in a safe way meaning good diet and exercise and not worry about losing it too fast?

    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.
