It depends : A lot of weight loss depends on your weight age and gender as well as the type of diet you're following. On the South Beach Diet which is a hypoglycemic ketogenic diet for most part the typical weight loss is about 2 to 3 pounds a week. However if you are heavy, and exercising while dieting i've seen as much as 5 to 10 pounds a week for the first few weeks as you lose weight the weight-loss slows down.

Calories in vs out: Weight loss is all about calories in vs calories out. What you eat matters much less than how much you eat. It's less about regimented diet plans and more about taking in fewer calories than you burn in a day.
