I started @ 238. I lost weight very slowly in the beginning because I was just cutting out carbs I didn't like - AKA bread rice and pizza base. I lost 20lb in 7 weeks.
However after a stall etc etc I did Fasting. 28 days of 1 day, then 2, 3, 5, 8, 6, 9, 9, 20 and that entire time I was losing 2/3rd - 3/4 lb a day.
Now when I fast, the first 2-3 days see a 10-12 lb loss.
Then its back to that 2/3 or so.
You should lose pretty rapidly I would think and get to 200 in 21 - but don't blame me if you don't. The cleaner your fast the more likely you are to lose well.
Plain water as needed per thirst. Coffee and tea make cortisol which can lock up fat in your belly, obviously any calories you take in will have to be burnt before the fat is burnt, and carbs and protein create insulin and stop the fat burn for hours after.
All the best, post your progress please.
