Every pound of body fat is equal to 3,500 stored calories. So, to lose one pound of body fat per week, one has to create a calorie deficit of 500 calories a day. A calorie defifcit can be created by decreasing the amount of foods eaten and/or adding/increasing exercise to the daily routine. To lose two pounds a week, one has to create a 1,000 calorie deficit each day. It is difficult to say how much you should eat since calorie requirements are based on height, weight, age, activity level, metabolism (the rate at which you use up stored calories), muscle/fat ratio and other factors. The calculation above is a general guideline that can be used for most adults regardless of weight and/or height.

It's not like that. When we are going to start our weight loss journey, we need to consume healthy nutrition food with all sufficient amounts of fats, proteins and carbs. When we are in diet, we can take mostly 60-80 grams of fats from our daily calories, 20-25% of proteins and the remaining we are consuming carbs. What I am saying, we have to maintain a balanced a diet with all need; reducing carbs alone is not well.
