ROUGHLY how long does it take to lose 60 pounds ?

    It depends and it’s very individual.

    But you can begin with a simple body cleanse. Cut out sugars and start drinking at least 3 liters of water a day. Then, incorporate some exercise three times a week.

    You can also try this amazing yoga burn challenge for 12 weeks! It will help you to get rid of sugar cravings and you will feel really good afterwards! 👍🏽

    The exact amount of time needed to lose 60 pounds depends on your ability to reduce your caloric intake and how frequently you walk. A safe rate of weight loss, however, is between one and two pounds a week, which means it could take you 25 to 50 weeks to lose 60 pounds.

    By my clock 2.5 months.   It depends on how much fat you have to lose.  

    That's right, fat ONLY.

    It depends on a lot of factors particularly what weight you're starting at and how much muscle mass you have and what kind of shape you're in. 

    2-3 pounds a week is generally pretty easy. Just cut back on your junk food a little and try to exercise a little each day. So, 15-30 weeks. 

    4 pounds a week is a little harder. That would be 15 weeks. 

    5 is fairly hard but can be done. That's 12 weeks. 

    Anything over 5 you need to be in good shape to handle long workouts. 

    The other answers have no idea what they're talking about. I lost 40 pounds in a month and i guarantee I was eating healthier than all of them put together.

    Abut 60 weeks -- or approximately one year.  A realistic and healthy weight loss goal is 1-1.5 pounds per week.  

    Even if a person has a greater/faster weight loss at the beginning of their diet, over time the will slow and even stall, so the actual time frame almost always ends up being a full year.  Of course it depends on whether the person is just 60 pounds overweight or 200 pounds overweight.  A person who weight 400 pounds can often shed 60 in a lot less time, but they will still be severely obese.

    I agree around a year long, a couple pounds or so a week. but it requires some pretty strict eating changes and diet discipline. I started running again after years a couple miles 3 times a week for a few months, used to weigh 200 now weigh 184. I was not disciplined enough though, so after 3 months I said screw it I can do more later lol. This is the exact mindset that ruins many people.
