In brief: 525,000

150 lbs of fat represents 525,000 calories.
To lose this amount of weight in a sustainable and effective manner should take you about a year and a half. You want to limit your calories and increase your exercise. Ideally you will be losing 1-2 lbs per week. Crash diets and exercise programs usually cause water and muscle loss instead of fat loss. Talk with a nutritionist and your doctor.
