The Zone diet doesn’t promise immediate dramatic weight loss. You can expect to lose just 1 to 1.5 Pounds in the first week, but the plan pledges that the weight you lose will be all fat, not muscle or water. As your body changes, your clothes will fit better even if the scale doesn’t budge all that much at first.
