weight loss


Question by  Baba (9)

How many calories do I need to burn to lose weight?


Answer by  KnittyKitty88 (31)

Generally, 1 pound of fat equates to 3500 calories. So to lose 1 pound a week, you have to burn 500 calories a day to see results.

To lose weight, burn more calories than you consume. The average dieter can lose 1 to 2 pounds a week - any more than that, and the body starts to consume muscle and bone, not fat. To lose one pound a week, try to consume about 500 calories less than you burn every day.

You need to burn more calories than you eat every day. For example, if you eat 2,000 calories every day, and you burn 2,500, you will lose weight.

There are 3,500 calories in every pound of fat, multiply 3,500 times the number of pounds you want to lose. Reducing calorie intake and exercise will also help.

You need to burn more calories than you eat. A pound of fat is equal to about 3500 calories, so on top of the normal daily calories you burn (about 1200-1500) you would need to burn an additional 3500 calories a week in order to lose one pound per week.
