1 pound of fat is about 3500 cals. Phase 1 is about 900 calories. The average human needs 2, 000 cals a day. 900 - 2, 000 is -1100 cals deficit a day. -1100 X 7 days a week is -7, 700 cals deficit a week. You should lose 1. 5/2 pounds of fat a week. May vary person to person and irregular weight loss happens due to hormones(cycles), constipation, keto plateau, anabolic working out(muscle gain vs. fat loss).

Many see and average of 2 pounds a week. Don’t forget inches too. Many lose inches when the scale doesn’t move

Everyone is different and every time you do phase 1 your body will react differently to it. My first time on phase 1 the first week I lost 13 pounds with an average of 4 pounds a week loss. I’ve reset twice now both times on my reset the first week I lost 8 pounds and then each week after that was an average 2 pound loss.

I was 2-3lbs but have lost 80lbs and only have 12lbs to go. I have slowed down to about 1lbs per week since there is less to lose.

About 1-3pounds but when I hit a plateau I do a drink challenge and I usually drop about 4-5 pounds that week
