Theoretically, One pound of body weight is equal to 3500 calories. It’s mean, if you want to lose one pound, you should fewer your calorie intake about 3500 fewer in a period of time.

Often, as we eat less, our bodies expend calories at a slower rate coz the metabolism of the body also decrease. Perhaps this occurs to ensure our survival, or just to defend a comfortable body weight. This slowdown is a real phenomenon, and has been shown in many laboratory studies it's called diet induced adaptive thermogenesis. If your calorie expenditure falls, it can be increasingly difficult to take in few enough calories to lose weight. This can be quite difficult and make you frustration to the person trying to shed some pounds.

By cutting 500 calories a day (a total of 3500 per week), and otherwise eating a balanced diet, you may find you lose approximately a pound a week. This rate of weight loss is considered reasonable and healthy.

While simple math might suggest that one could cut thousands of calories per day and shed pounds in the blink of any eye, more realistic and lasting weight change happens gradually. Skipping meals can actually have a negative impact on weight management. To keep your metabolism speeding along, consider having 4 or 5 smaller meals and snacks throughout the day.

To maintain your weight and keep you metabolism moving do exercise. It’s good for your regardless and stamina of your body wether you’re trying to lose weight or just curious about calories.
