View Full Version : How much weight should i be losing?

I am currently on my cut. I was wondering how much weight am i suppose to be losing a week, without losing much muscle. I know for example, when bulking more than a 2 lb gain means I'm gaining fat as well.

dunno if anyone can back me up but i believe that 1.5/2 pounds is a healthy amount of weight to lose a week, anymore than that and its gonna be muscle thats going

That's totally subjective.

I lost like 7 lbs of fat and gained 2 lbs of muscle over about 6 weeks during mid summer cut

I thought that was pretty good

I lost about 70lbs of fat and put on 10 lbs of muscle over my 11 month cut. I thought that was pretty ****ty.

That's totally subjective

if you got 100lbs of fat to lose, you may or may not lose it faster then if you have 10lbs of fat to lose

Generic rule of thumb - 1-2 lbs a week depending on body fat.
