How much weight should I lose?

Everyone’s goals are different and we strongly recommend you chat with your GP before embarking on any drastic weight-loss journeys.

We typically recommend a weight-loss goal of about 0.5 to 1kg per week – slow, steady, and safe weight loss is key for longer-term results.

Remember: if you’re adding in training (particularly strength training) you’ll gain muscle, so If you find you’re not hitting a 0.5 to 1kg weight-loss target, it might be because you’ve gained muscle mass.

Although this is a weight loss program, there are other ways to measure success. Tune into how you are feeling, do you have more energy? Are you feeling more confident? Take note of how your clothes feel, your waist measurements and whether you feel fitter, stronger and healthier. It’s not always about the number on the scales.
