2 doctors agree

In brief: 2 lb/wk so 6 maybe

There is a difference between losing fat and losing water weight.
And a rapid weight loss in a couple of weeks is often due to loss of fluid. A more reasonable goal is to lose 1 lb/wk over a longer period of time through a combination of healthy diet and exercise. See my guides on food and exercise. If health problems, get approval from your physician as appropriate. Thanks for asking! @drpam.
