Well there are 3,500 calories in one pound so if you lose 500 calories everyday by eating healthy foods such as fruits and walk for at least 30 minutes so in a week you should lose one pound.

I'll start by saying, to lose 1 pound a week, you need to burn 3,500 calories.

You can create this caloric deficit by doing cardio (which burns 300-600 calories/hour) or by just eating less.

How do you figure out how much you will lose by doing this?  Here's how:

Find your maintenance calories, the amount of calories you need to eat to maintain your weight: Bodyweightx15.

So for example: 150lb x 15 = 2,250 calories.

To lose 1 pound a week, you'd need to eat 500 calories less than this each you'd need to be on a diet of 1,750 calories/day.

If you want to lose more than 1 pound/week, you could create a greater deficit by eating less (don't go lower than 1,200 calories as a woman and 1,500 as a man) or by doing more cardio.


You just need to get used to counting your calories and using a food scale so you know what exactly you're putting in your body.

The simplest way if you don't do that though is to:

1. Eat less
2. Exercise more

Then assess: "am I losing weight?"

If answer is no...then:

1. Eat less and...
2. Exercise more

repeat until desired weight is reached.

Keep in mind, eating more veggies/lean meats and fruits will make it easier for you to lose the weight as they are low in calories and more satiating than most processed foods.

These basics will get you started..Make sure you keep learning though, there are some powerful weight loss systems out there which can explain things in more detail.

1 pound of fat is equal to 3500 calories so in a week you have to burn 3500 calories more then you eat to lose 1 pound.

You have to be on fire 3500 MORE calories than you eat, to lose 1 pound of fat. Consequently how a lot of total calories you would require to burn would depend on your caloric eating.

Characteristically though, an important person eating correct and exercising frequently can lose 1 - 2 lbs a week with refusal difficulty.
I weighed in my opinion before I leaved into a sauna and evaluated 148.8. I went into the sauna for concerning 10 minutes, and weighed for my part behind, I after that weighed 147.6. There single pound, other than if you desire to lose a few weight do a lot of cardio action, somewhat than exciting weights. Losing 1-2 pounds shouldn't be that tough. I would create yourself off simple though and occupation your weigh up so your body is second-hand to it and you won't totally tire out yourself and weak.

To misplace 1 pound per week you require taking in 500 calories a smaller amount, whether by dropping your food, picking enhanced choices or in grouping with exercise.
To mislay 2 pounds per week you require doing the similar, but 1000 calorie decrease per day.

Unless you go after a thermo genie diet similar to Kinkiness and then you drop much earlier than the 3500 calorie regulation allows.

One thing to remember is that even though it does take an additonal 3500 calories burned to lose a pound of fat, that could come in the form of both exercise and reduced calories.However, you should never reduce calories to less than 1200 per day w/o Dr. Supervison and you should never have a net decrease in calories of more than 1000 per day.So if you work out and burn 500 calories then your net intake should only be reduced 500 based on standard caloric needs tables.Remember that increase in activity also increases caloric need. Additionally, fats should be minimized but are still a very important component to your diet. On a 2000 calorie diet 30-40 grams of fat should be eaten. The best way to lose weight is to get a list of activities that you like, find the caloric expenditure based on your body size, and utilize that through your day to expend 500 calories a day. A pedometer to figure 10000 steps a day is a great method. At that same time, plan your meals each evening to determine calorie intake and stick with it. As a nutrition major and wellness coach, I have found that the biggest obstacle to weight loss can be lack of planning.
