It really depends on how much the person has to lose. With about 30 pounds overweight, I know that at first I lose about 1.5-2 lbs a week, but as soon as I start nearing the 140ish, it slows down to a booooring pace. In general, though, I think that 2-3 lbs/week is a good average loss - healthy enough, and also fast enough to avoid being too soon discouraged.
