How much fat calories do you have to burn to lose one pound?
about 3500 depending on body type It takes eating 3500 calories a week (500 a day) less than you burn off to lose 1 pound. Which means an average woman burning to 2000 on a normal day would have to reduce her intake to 1500 calories a day, this is on average and not guaranteed as we dont know exactly how many calories we burn a day, also keeping a food diary with accurate weights and measurements is the only way to know your calorie intake is correct. Its not rocket science! calories taken in should be less than calories out and the only true free food is celery! but whats really not fair is it only takes 3000 calories more than you burn off to gain a pound.

Depends on how much food and water you intake to burn those 3500 calories. When I used to do my 3500 calorie burns on a cross trainer I would drink anywhere from 1-2 gallons o…f water. Water weighs in at around 8lbs a gallon. I would loose roughly 5-10LBs on a scale. Your going to need water to fuel your body from all the sweat you will loose. If your going to burn over 1000 calories in a single exercise I would suggest first to get working out for 2-3 weeks before you start. Also I would suggest anything over 1000 calories to intake some vitamins with your water as well; or any drink with some calories for energy.
It depends on how much you eat. A pound of fat is 3500 calories. So if you are eating the right amount then at that rate you will burn a pound of fat in about 11-12 days. Its …important to note that just because the cardio machine tells you that you're burning 300 calories doesn't necessarily make it so. Your body also burns more calories as your body repairs. Now the above assumes you are eating the right amount. If you eat too much then it will take you longer.
You need to burn about 3,500 calories per pound. Then you need to burn 70,000 calories to lose 20 pounds.
3,500 calories = 1 lb of fat There are 3,500 calories in 1 pound of fat. To burn one pound, you must burn 3,500 calories. This can be done by reducing calorie intake and incre…asing your activity. Do not decrease your calories by more than 500-800 calories a day. This will slow your metabolism. Try to increase your activity by engaging in moderate to intense exercise for 20-45 minutes a minimum of 3 times a week. A 1-2 pound loss in weight a week is a healthy and more maintainable amount of weight loss. Let's say you typically eat 2,500 calories per day, and want to lose weight. To lose one pound in a week, you would need to eat 3,500 calories less during that week. This would mean reducing your caloric intake to 2,000 calories per day for the week, since 2,500-2,000 = 500 and 500 x 7 days = 3,500 calories.
If you want to lose a pound of fat and not water weight, it takes 3500 calories. So it takes 7 days of having a 500 calorie deficit to lose a pound of fat.
It doesn't matter how much you weigh, it's always the same. If you want to burn one pound of fat you need to burn more than you consume. Since a pound equals 455 grams (appr…oximately), and each gram of fat contains 9 calories, you need to burn approximately 4095 more calories than you eat to loose one pound of fat.
9 calories = 1fat calorie
To lose one solid pound of weight, you need to burn 3,500 more calories than you consume in a day.
first off all you should be aware that if you burn 3 500 calories that means you have lost 1 pound so hence if we do the math 3 500 * 10 = 35 000 calories is your target for l…osing 10 pounds!
One pound of fat is equal to about 3,500 calories no matter what your current weight is. If you can burn that many (or consume that many fewer) calories in one week, you… will lose a pound of fat in one week.
One Pound of fat ios approx 3250 calories
1gram of fat contains 9 calories 1gram of carbohydrates contains 4 calories 1gram of sugar contains 4 calories 1gram of protein contains 4 calories 1gram o…f alcohol contains 7 calories all calories would be burnt at the same rate hence why 1gram of fat = 9 calories which is almost equal to 2grams of sugar. hope this helps you a little as i did join just to answer your question. 1 you may find useful the average person burns 4.8 calories a minute doing sit ups depending on there fitness level.
3500 calories make up a pound. So, if you burn 600 a day it would take you a little less than 6 days to lose a pound ( 3500/600= 5.83333) Keep in mind that this only remains t…rue if you are burning more calories than you are consuming.
No. Even if your math is correct, your body just doesn't work that simply.
To lose one pound of weight one must burn approximately anywhere from 3400 to 3600 calories. It is not recommended to try and burn this amount of calories within one day.
