Did you know that 1 pound of fat is worth around 3,500 calories?
So mathematically you’d need to be on a 500-calorie deficit each day to lose 1 pound each week.
Losing around 1 pound each week is best, healthy and safe for most people.
If you are in doubt, you could lower that deficit.
Please consult your doctor first before attempting anything.
1 pound is 0.45 kilograms.
