In brief: No
I consider losing more than 2 lbs per week to be unhealthy.
You will injure yourself doing too much exercise, or you are cutting too many calories and your system will rebel, and you will have rebound weight gain at some point.

To put things in perspective that is about 7000 calories! With normal caloric intake about 2000 calories... More than 2 lbs a week is nearly 31/2 days of caloric intake. I agree with Dr. Wyatt.. I usually recommend about 1-2 pounds per week.
