How many calories do I need to burn a day to lose 2 lbs a week?

I’m 5’10 and weigh about 145 lbs. I want to get down to 135lbs. I’m not sure how many calories I burn a day just going thru the motions of day to day tasks. I have also been trying to run/walk 30 mins at least 3 days a week.

I’m not sure how many calories I should be consuming or how many calories I need to burn to reach my goal.

    It is recommended that an adult get 30 minutes of exercise a day. If you want to kick it up a notch, that would help. Also, change your diet if you haven’t already. Eat a lot of whole grains, healthy protein, fruit and veggies, and water. You want to burn more calories then you are taking in to lose weight.

    It really depends on how much calories you burn a day and how many calories you consume. A person who does active work throughout the day and exercise should burn about 2000 calories, i think that if you eat 1500 calories a day and burn about 2000 you should be fine.
    You can go to and use the tools such as BMI and burn meter to calculate how much calories do you need to consume, and about how many calories you are burning every day.

    You need to burn 1000 more calories than you eat each day to lose 2 pounds per week.
