eat a lot celery all day and drink 3 cups of green tea. You would eat no food to lose weight but skipping out on food would not guarantee losing a pound in one day. In addition, you would add stress to the body by trying to lose that much weight. To give you an idea: one pound of body fat is equal to 3,500 calories and unless you are eating that much a day, you won't lose one pound. You can also lose water weight but when you start eating and drinking regular food, water weight comes right back.

How many calories should you eat to lose 1 pound a 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.

Eating after a certain time won't make you gain weight. It all comes down to how much you eat and what you eat. If you are hungry before bed grab an apple or something small and healthy.
