Let’s take this in 5 scenarios.
If you’re at a stage where you’re quite happy with your weight, but want to lose a few pounds for a holiday, or wedding, or some event where you want to look your best, then it will take a lot of effort to lose 6 pounds in a month.
You can of course go on a crash diet, but these should only be followed for a maximum of 10 days.
This will involve a more ‘active’ involvement with your weight loss, rather than watching what you eat. Yes, of course, you will still need to be careful with the amount of calories you take in, but it’s far more important to get active.
Being close to your target weight will make it pretty hard to lose those last 6 pounds. You will have to really push yourself by exercise to get there, but wow! aren’t you lucky that you’re so close to your target weight?
More exercise should be enjoyed rather than endured.
How Much Weight Can I Lose In 1 Month – Overweight
OK, if you’re between 12 pounds and 25 pounds overweight, losing fat will be easier than being slightly overweight. Why?
You have more to lose and everything in this world is relative. It will still be quite difficult to shed a lot of weight in 1 month, it will fall off easier, but will slow down towards the end of the month, quite drastically!
The first two weeks on a diet of healthy eating and moderate daily exercise, say a 3 or 4 mile brisk walk EVERYDAY, should lose you between 8 and 14 pounds. Of course the more exercise you do, the more chance of losing more weight.
The last 2 weeks will be a lot slower, but you should take off another 3-5 pounds, making a loss of between 11 pounds and 19 pounds.
The incentive here is to push yourself hard because you are closer than millions of people to getting to your ideal weight.
Sensible eating with portion control and a good level of exercise will achieve good results in a month, so go for it!
