There are many people that can lose a pound of weight every day but it is not healthy to do so. Losing one to two pounds a week is a good amount to lose.

You might want to rephrase your question, but to lose one pound, you must lose one pound. Every 3500 calories is one pound.

100 calories a day is not much, but is still enought to lose weight. At this rate you'd lose about a pound of fat every 35 days, since a pound of fat is about 3500 calories.

2 pounds if you do not increase your activity level. For every 3500 calories you will lose one pound.

3500 calories are in one pound of fat. To lose the weight you have to burn 3500 more calories than you eat. Fact: every time you laugh you burn 3.5 calories...laugh 1,000 times every day to burn 3500 calories.

It depends on how much you are eating and exercising. It also depends on your calorie deficit. If it's a 500 calorie deficit a day, you will lose a pound a week. If it's a 1,000 calorie deficit a day, you will lose two pounds. Add 500 to each day and you will lose an extra pound. But, it's not good to lose more than 3 pounds a week.

A pound of fat is generally around 3500 calories, so to lose a pound of fat a week you would need to lose 500 calories a day

I did 20 minutes on my treadmill , 4 days a week, and lost about one pound a week.

Not really. You might lose one pund by running the stairs every day for a week though.

its impossible to lose a pound a can lose a pound every 4 days if u burn 800 calories off working out and watch your calorie in take.if you do this for a year you will lose up too 90-100 pounds. (:

Have you considered how much your metabolism is burning? Any in case, a calorie deficit of 200 a day (1000 - 800) means you'd lose weight at about 1 pound of fat every 17.5 days. 1 pound of fat = 3500 calories

Probably if they are really overweight, or if they starve themselves. Not usually a good idea.

It vaires per person and based on their own individual habits. If is it just an extreme diet, they may lose a pound every week or two. If they are intensely exercising and really restricting their food intake they may be able to lose a pound or two every week.

just drink water and salad for one day and depending on how good you did you can lose more then 1 pound

The average person spends 2,000 calories every day just to maintain bodily function. in order to lose weight without exercising, they would have to cut out calories. Assuming that they reduced their caloric intake to 1,500 calories per day, and that it takes 3,500 calories to lose one pound of weight, they would lose one pound per week.

Cut back what you eat by only a couple of hundred calories a day and you will lose a pound in a week. Go for a brisk walk for 20 minutes every day is another way. Don't eat after 7pm and cut out the fizzy drink, alcohol and fast foods. You will actually lose more if you stick to all those.

12,000 steps is an average of 6 miles, depending on your stride length. For every 2000 steps (mile) you burn approximately 100 calories. This answer depends on how many steps you were taking before you wanted to lose weight. (If you were already walking 10,000 steps a day you'll only burn 100 extra calories a day and it will take you a month to lose one pound). If you are walking 12,000 extra steps per day, you will burn an extra 600 calories per day and lose a pound about every 6 days.

There is no exercise that has the ability to make you lose a pound a day and if there was, it wouldn't be healthy to do so. Your body is sacred, treat it well by eating right and exercising on a daily basis.

You can lose a pound in a day easily. It is not something you want to do on a regular basis. Simply not eating will drop a pound or two in a day. But that isn't something that is healthy to do more than say, one day a month.

There are 3500 calories in one pound. Cutting 500 calories a day would make you lose one pound each week.

3500 calories equals 1 pound. If you eat 500 calories less a day, you will lose 1 pound a week.

Regardless of how much you consume per day, you need to burn 3500 calories in order to lose a pound.

It is not advised to lose 20 pound in 18 days. However, in order to lose one pound per day, you must burn 3,500 calories.

Too many variables. First of all, 1 pound a day, unless you are morbidly obese, is more than is safe. Typically to lose one pound of weight, you have to burn 3500 calories. Most people maintain at half that amount of calories per day, which means it is not possible to lose one pound a day even if you don't eat at all. And intense physical activity is not possible without some calorie intake, that makes it even more difficult. A person doesn't typically gain a pound in a day, so there is no reason to think they should be able to lose a pound in a day.
