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.
