    about 6 and a half a week. Unless you are starting from a very high weight, that is a very unrealistic target, and it would take some very drastic lifestyle changes which would be hard to maintain

    This is not easy to answer. If you make it a simple math problem ... assume you want to lose that weight this Feb and March. That's 29 days in Feb + 31 days in march = 60 days. Divide 60 by 7 and you have about 8 1/2 weeks. So 50 pounds divided by 8 1/2 = 5.88. So you'd need to lose almost 6 pounds a week to do that ...

    BUT .... there's more to dieting than just pounds per week, kwim? On any healthy diet plan, you usually lose faster the first couple of weeks and then level off, it's probably not all that healhty to lose 50 pounds in two months ... since the genrerl recommendation is a steady loss of 2-4 pounds per week.

    Good luck!!
