How Long Should I Take to Achieve My Weight Loss Goal?

This is a common question and the answer, as always, has many considerations.

Whenever I am working together with people on their nutrition we always discuss the following:

  • Making sure the weight goal and the body goal are aligned.
  • Making sure you don’t end up with too much excess skin (if the starting point is very obese).
  • Making sure it is sustainable.

So, bearing all that in mind, here is a rough idea of what it should take to achieve your goal weight. If you wanted to take it to an extreme I would suggest you could do it 40% faster and 100%+ slower but, from experience this is about right.
