I weigh 360 pounds. If I work out on my elliptical twice a day — an hour each time — how much weight will I lose in two weeks?

It’s really about calories in vs. calories out. Depending on how hard you are working, you burn 8-12 calories per minute on the elliptical. If you don’t change your diet you would lose 5 pounds every 2 weeks. Dropping calories from your diet, can boost your weight loss.
