I'm eating 1200 calories a day (food mainly consisting of protein, veg and fruit), and doing exercise every day for an hour (cardio: treadmill, cross trainer, rowing machine, bike). How much weight (kg) roughly do u think one could lose doing this for four weeks? I know everyone has a different body type, but just wondering roughly. Thanks :smile:

    Depends on what your current weight is, but probably around 5 lb.

    It depends on a number of factors that make answering from what you gave us nearly impossible. But in general, 1-4 kg.

    How long is a piece of string? So many variables and you've given zero info for us to go on.

    I've been eating mainly protein, veg and fruit (cut out junk completely), and I do cardio at the gym for an hour (15 mins each on treadmill, cross trainer, bike and rowing machine).

    None of that will help either. What it your age/height/weight/activity level outside of exercise?

    They mean what are your current stats? Age, gender, height, current weight....

    this still tells us nothing, height, weight, gender, age, activity level etc

    Sorry I'm pretty new to this. I'm 19, 5'11, I weigh 91kg, and I am lightly active (walk around a lot to get to places).

    If you are in deficit and are exercising (optional) you will have your answer in four weeks. The keys are accurate honest logging and dedication. That crazy binge on the weekend will set you back.

    Anywhere from 4-8 pounds of fat loss is possible. You may not know it, however, because in that short of time, your fat loss could be masked by fluid retention or other factors. Quick TDEE calc of lightly active would mean a diet of 1400 or so calories a day (at 2400 TDEE) could give you that type of result.

    Very quick numbers, but should be in the ballpark.

    8lbs if your logging is tight but if you're new to it, account for errors and you'd probably be more likely to lose 4-6
