Did you mean 1500 calories? What is your Base Metabolic Rate (how much does Fitday say you burn each day)? Your 150 carbs a day are about 600 calories or 40% of a 1500 calorie diet.

Your weight loss depends on the calorie deficit you attain. A 500 calorie deficit will yield about a one pound per week loss. (A pound of weight equates to roughly 3500 calories so 500 x 7 days = 3500). If you have a calorie deficit of 1000 calories per day you will see about a 2 pound loss per week.

1 to 2 pounds per week is a good healthy rate.
