That is not a safe calorie consumption for anyone, especially someone starting an exercise program. Know this, it takes consuming an extra 3500 calories in a week to gain one pound. Likewise, you must burn or cut out an extra 3500 calories in a week to lose one pound. Do the math to figure out your weight loss. It is safe to only lose 1 to 2 pounds per week so don't plan on more. If you lose more, you'll just gain it back and you could get sick. Think one pound is nothing? How about this, one pound is equal to 4 sticks of butter. One pound is something! Take a multivitamin when exercising and dieting. Drink a lot of water, 8 glasses a day. Don't be afraid of calories, arm yourself with information. Keep a log of how many calories and foods you consume. Get your sugars from fruit, not sweets like cake and candy. Eat carbs in moderation, as small side dish portions with your meals not a whole meal of white rice or pasta.

Is it true that sit ups do not help you to lose weight?

Kinda-sorta. The big thing to weight loss is to use up more calories per day than you're eating. Trouble is, eating calories is so much faster than burning calories through exercise that if your eating is wrong it's almost impossible to exercise hard enough to make a difference. As an example: -let's say you're eating one cupcake's worth of calories (around 450 cal) more than you actually need. Most people, and most forms of exercise, it'll take one hour to exercise that away. So while any form of exercise is better than no exercise, odds are you won't be able to enough sit ups to make much of a difference to your weight unless your eating is well under control.

Does exercise really makes you lose weight?

Kinda-sorta. To lose weight you need to be using up more calories than you're eating, and that's pretty much it. While exercise will make you use up more calories, weight loss or not still depends on how many calories you're eating. Let's say you're eating 1000 calories more than you need (that's easy, it's like two cupcakes and coffee), and you're using up 500 calories through exercise. That'll still put you 500 cals more than you need, and you'll keep gaining weigh - only a bit slower now. But maybe your eating is only a little wrong - say 100 calories more than you need. Now, 500 calories worth of exercise will be the same as 400 cals of weight loss. Nothing you'd see in a day, but give it some weeks and there'll be a difference.
