You'll lose weight only one way: expend more energy than you take in. Two basic ways: 1) more activity (expend energy), such as walking, aerobics, rowing, jogging; and 2) eat less fat and oil. If you stick with lean meat (chicken, some beef, turkey, fish), vegetables (especially green and orange), fruits, low-fat grains (like pasta without butter), and low-fat or skim dairy products, you'll have a better time of it than starving. Your height and weight have very little to do with your caloric intake. A moderately-active person can take in 1500 calories and still lose weight. We burn about 1200 calories a day just being alive! Remember, carbs get burned first, then protein, then fat, so read the ingredients and check for fat and oil content. In our society, 0g of fat is impossible. Just try to keep it minimal. Water weight is not a problem unless you take in too much salt. Follow these simple guidelines (if you will) and you'll be losing weight in no time. And remember: Do Not Obess Over Losing Weight.

It takes 3500 calories to lose a pound

User Avatar

you would die if you ate that many calories. to lose weigh find out how many calories you should be eating for your current weight and then find out how many calories you should be eating for your target weight. slowly inch your calories down to that target weight range. and really you should ask your doctor about weight loss. to see if you even need it.

I would say stick with 2,000 calories a day. IT's a healthy number.

It depends on how much you weigh, and how many calories are in your body in the first place.

Before you start to lose weight you will need to look at the (body mass index). That will help you to see if you will need to lose weight or not. If you do need to lose weight, its best that you talk to your nutritionist and they can help you to decide how many calories you should have each day, what foods you should be eating, and what foods you shouldn't be eating regularly.

Input of calories is not as important as output, infact there is no need to change your calorie intake if you simply exercise more. The amount of calories eaten to lose 2lbs is a function of the amount of calories burned.

if you are 5'10" and weigh 129lb, you certainly do not want to lose any weight, if anything put a few lbs on!

To lose weight, you should be eating less calories than you expend. Try to eat a balanced diet with salad's and meats that are not fried. Have veggies like broccoli and cauliflower.

It depends on how many you are burning. Are you exercising or sitting on the couch?

at least 300 calories per day

You can lose 120 calories depending on how fast you walk. I'm 15 and weigh 95 pounds so I would lose less :P. GOOD LUCK!

This depends on your metabolism, and how much weight you want to lose, or not lose.
