      Interesting stuff - I have come across a lot of info as I research posts for the forum and the consensus seems to be that the longer it takes to lose excess weight, the more chance of keeping it off.

      AS far as bodybuilding is considered, loosing more than 2lb per week can result in loss of muscles along with the fat.
      With proper high protein diet and supplements such as the glutamine, you can loose 2 lb pure fat ( not 100% pure but some of it ) per week.
      Loosing two lb means creating a 1000kcals deficit per day. That's not much difficult.
      however for middle age I would say 1lb per week is ok. Keep it slow and live the journey.

      When you say a "1000kcals deficit" do you mean basically you are working off 1000kcals a day more than you are putting into your body?
