Q3: I’m six feet, 250 pounds. I’d like to get down to 200. What’s a realistic time frame for me to reach my target number? Is there a safe amount of weight to lose per week?

“Assuming you plan to lose this weight and keep it off, a realistic goal would be six months to a year.  Everyone’s body type is different, and this is a good conservative goal for even the slowest of metabolisms. Anywhere from one to two pounds a week of weight loss is a safe, effective strategy.”
