In brief: Difficult
Low-carb diet is likely to promote weight loss, at least at first, but risky.
Weight loss may or may not continue long term, depending on your commitment to following the eating plan. If you abandon the low-carb diet and return to your former eating habits, you may regain any lost weight.

Low cal diet plus burning out calories with exercise will help.
Losing weight is all about how many calories you consume Vs how many calories you burn out.Roughly about Losing 3500 calories will make you lose 1 lb. So you see it is slow but weight lost this way you can keep off if you adequately change your eating and exercise habits. Hope this helps .

In brief: It depends
On your height, weight, sex, age and metabolic rate.
On average a young male on a very low calorie diet (800 kcal/day) can lose up to 4-5 lbs. In a week (female 2-3 lbs./week). The heavier the start weight, the more the weight loss, unless an underlying disease like low thyroid function is in place. With intense exercise (cardio and weights) the weight loss can be more obviously.
