How much weight will I lose?

The amount of weight lost depends on a number of factors including starting weight, activity levels, compliance with the program etc. As a guide from the over 14000 members who have done this program, it is expected that if the program is followed conscientiously you should see at least a 5% reduction in your starting weight by the end of week 6 and be approaching an 8% reduction by the end of the program. However success relies on consistency and perseverance and the exact amount of weight lost varies between participants.
