Be practical: Those with 6 pack abs are often down in the 5-10% body fat range while normal folk run 15-20.If you are a little thick, 25-30%. If you plan on dropping 15%+ of your body weight in 2 months, it could happen but you would probably be miserable. Dropping a pound a week is practical and you can probably keeep it off.
