A pound equals 3500 calories. Therefore, if you want to lose a pound, it is the same as losing that many calories. The healthy and effective way of doing this is not to starve yourself. Why? Because it does not work. You regain the weight as soon as you begin eating again.
In addition, you usually gain more weight than you lost because you were not getting enough nutrients along the way. It is your body's way of compensating. Aim to lose not more than one or two pounds a week, so that equals about 500 less calories to intake for a day. For example, done 7 days and you can lose a pound. (500x7=3500 3500=1lb).
A calorie is the same whether it is in broccoli or ice cream. Obviously, you should cut calories by losing the "bad" foods. Even though the good and bad foods contain calories, what you are getting out of different foods is not the same.
For example, if you eat a piece of hard candy and an apple, the apple has more calories than a small piece of candy but it is worth it because the apple has fiber and natural sugars that your body needs. So, cutting back on bad calories is part of your answer.
Therefore, the way to lose pounds, and keep them off, is to eat less junk food and refined (processed) carbohydrates than before. Refined (processed) carbohydrates are a major cause of weight gain, obesity, and many diet related diseases.
If you are uncertain, what a refined/processed carbohydrate is, for a list see the page link, further down this page, listed under Related Questions. When you eliminate or strictly limit (apart from the occasional treat) refined/processed carbohydrate, you will be eating less calories and less carbohydrates per day. You will still be getting natural carbohydrates from fresh vegetables and fruit.
Replace those 'bad' foods with more of the so-called 'fat burning' foods. You can learn more about fat burning foods, further down this page, listed under Related Questions. In addition, engage in cardio exercise. When done correctly cardio exercise is an excellent fat burner.
Cardio can be such things as brisk walking, running, jogging, cross-country skiing etc. Cardio walking is excellent. It is easier on your body than running or jogging and it is sustainable long term. To learn how to do cardio correctly for fat burning, see the page link, further down this page, listed under Related Questions. If you want to add more to this, engage in weight training. The more muscle you have the more calories you burn 24 hours a day and not just when you are exercising.
