How many calories does it take to lose a pound?

Category: Exercise & Fitness


One pound of body fat is equal to roughly 3500 calories. To lose fat you’ll have to take in fewer calories or burn more. It will ultimately depend on your activity levels and BMR. Two pounds of weight loss per week is the generally accepted guideline for healthy weight loss.
