|Losing weight slowly means you will be less likely to get stuck or gain the weight back. If you lose 7 pounds in 1 week your body will think you are starving and take action to prevent this.|
On the Excel Diet you should aim to lose 1 pound or 1/2 a kilogram per week. On this diet you can lose 52 pounds (26 kilograms) in one year. How many people would be happy to achieve this?
You didn't gain the weight quickly so don't try to lose it quickly.
Think of the Aesop fable about the tortoise and the hare. It's the same with weight loss. Slow and steady will beat fast and furious every time.
Remember that weight loss is not a sprint it's a marathon.
