    Healthy percentage of bodyfat to lose per month or week?


    Say I am currently 230 with 20%bf on CKD and eating about 500 cals below maintanence and working out hard. How long would it take me to get down to 12%. Can I lose 2% per month?

    .5-.75% per week can be consistently accomplished until you get to <10%.

    I lost 30lbs in 28 days and increased ALL my lifts by more than 50lbs, only drugs I were using were Ephedrine+Caffeine.

    You can lose a lot more than you think.

    what about under 10%? Seems like it could be 1% a month!

    About 1% per month then is an obtainable goal. You can reasonably expect 2% if done correctly.

    I have lost 20 lbs in 30 days and increase all of my lifts.

    I would say around 5LBS a week would be healthy and aggressive.
