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

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.

3500 calories = 1 pound. To lose 1 pound in a week, a person must burn 3500 more calories than they consume (500 calories per day).

That depends on how many calories you expend in daily metabolism. To lose a pound of fat you need to create a calorie deficit of approximately 3600 calories.

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

There are a lot of calories that one could lose in a day simply by walking. On an average day, one could hope to lose about 500 calories by walking. It takes 3500 calories lost to lose a pound.

To lose one solid pound of weight, you need to burn 3,500 more calories than you consume in a day.

You should consume seven calories per pound to lose weight, so 1655 calories per day.

If you burn 500 calories more than you eat each day, you would lose approximately one pound per week.

I understand that in order to GAIN a pound it requires 3500 calories of unspent energy in the body. Therefore, to LOSE a pound you'll need to burn off 3500 calories, or 500 calories a day to lose a pound in a week. I wouldn't focus on calorie consumption as much as I would on burning an extra 500 calories a day.

I would say about 2 calories a day would DEFINITELY make you lose major poundage!

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.

It takes a reduction of 3500 calories to lose a pound. So, many people cut 500 to 1000 calories a day to lose 1-2 pounds at week.

On average you burn 10 calories per pound that you weigh per day. Example: A person that weighs 130 pounds burn 1300 calories per day just existing. If you are looking to lose weight 3500 calories = 1 pound of fat. So take you weight multiply it by 10 and subtract that number from 3500 and you get how many calories you have to burn per day to lose 1 pound per day. Example: A per that weighs 130 pounds burns 1300 calories per day, subtract that from 3500 so he/she has to burn 2200 calories per day to lose 1 pound of weight per day.

A pound of fat contains roughly 3500 calories, so provided your weight is currently stable, you should aim to reduce your calorie intake by 500 calories a day to lose a pound a week. Adding in extra exercise will help too.

3500 calories is the rough estimate for the energy contained in one pound of fat. This means that to lose one pound per week, you must create a deficit of 3500 calories per week. Since a week as 7 days, that means a deficit of 3500 / 7 = 500 calories per day hope i helped =)

3500 calories per pound. So 5lb = 17500 calories per week or 2500 calories per day.

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.

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.

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.

I recall seeing somewhere that you have to burn 400 more calories than you consume per day to lose 1 pound. So you lose 3 pounds a day, you would have to burn 1200 calories more than you eat.
