Body Fat and Calories
- Body Fat & Calories
One pound of body fat consists of 3,500 calories. Therefore, to lose a pound of fat you must burn 3,500 calories through diet.
For example, if you typically consume 2,500 calories per day by reducing your daily caloric intake to 2,000 calories per day, you will cut your incoming calories by 3,500 per week and that equates to one pound a week.
