    1-2 pounds per week is healthy and realistic, but you can lose 5 pounds in a week if you need to, but it will most likely be temporary.

    Here is a tip for losing five pounds quickly:

    First a diet change to good foods. So fruits, water and such besides a healthy main course (make it a small portion).

    Then you have to have the dreaded exercise. Yup this is what does it. So if no gym around or affordable, do situps and pushups and such at home. Walk everywhere you can. At the mall park further away, walk in and take the stairs to the second level rather than the escalators.

    Start running in the morning or evening prior to eating and eat healthy (no bacon, no butter, cut back the potatoes, increase veggies).

    Cut out the snacks, pop, chips etc and chew on a carrot stick or a celery stick instead.
