Burn Calories

Burn Calories

You need to burn 3,500 Calories in order to lose 1 pound of fat.

That just doesn't seem fair. Does it?! How come it takes more to lose a pound than it does to gain a pound?! Because your body is always trying to survive. That means you need to work harder to lose fat than gain fat.

Following the example above, let's calculate how long it will take to lose 1 pound of fat.

  • 2,400 Calories daily required

  • 1,500 calories daily you consumed (limited to a 700 Calorie per day deficit)

  • 16,800 calories per week required
  • 11,900 calories per week consumed

  • 16,800 - 13,300 = 3,500 UNDER what your body required for the week

  • 1 pound of fat lost as a result - in 1 week

That scenario will only work IF you are eating and exercising properly.

This will only be true after you have "re-trained" your body to know that you are eating a good diet regularly. This could take at least 6 weeks before your body is willing to 'give up' that fat. So don't think that you will lose fat immediately upon changing your calorie count.

NO MORE THAN 1 TO 1.5 POUNDS PER WEEK weight loss should ever be attempted! It's not a matter of whether it's possible. It's not healthy to shed more than 1.5 pounds per week.
