Rate of weight loss during 20 weeks of Intermittent Fasting

Food for thought

  • I see that after loosing 14.4 kg (31.7 pounds) within 4 and a half months current weight loss is comparatively small.
  • As can be seen in the graph below the fastest rate of weight loss was during first 8 weeks of the fasting. And loss rate was 1.3 kg/week (2.87 lb/ week).
  • Then during 8 – 13th week the rate of loss became less steep, 0.46 kg/ week (1 lb/ week). So this rate is almost three times slower.
  • Finally from week 13 to week 20, the rate became even slower,
    0.24kg/ week (0.53 lb/ week). Which is six times slower than the initial rate of weight loss.

So beware that initial weight loss can be blazingly fast for you, but then plateau.
I went from 200 lb (90.6 kg) to 167 lb (76.2 kg) today. As a result of this weight loss I look already quite slim, so maybe my body doesn’t want to cooperate 🙂
