How many calories does it take to lose weight?

How many calories should you eat and burn in a day to lose weight? I am confused as to how many calories your body naturally burns, and if that is included or excluded with exercise.
Thanks for all the responses. You all have been very informative.

    Burning up calories became much easier for me when I started utilizing acai berry. I know they say that pills won’t work, but they certainly worked for me, and they’ve been shown on CBS News too. There’s a free trial on currently at**http%3a// , why not check it out, what’s the worst that could happen?

    This is difficult to answer as everybody is different and we all have different tasks throughout the day. Body composition plays a big role in how many calories one must take to sustain themselves. The average daily intake is about 2000 calories.

    One thing you need to understand is that 3500 calories equals a pound. You will need to reduce that amount of calories before you will see results. So in theory, if you are reducing your caloric intake by 500 a week, in 7 weeks you would have lost a pound.

    you have to burn 3500 calories to lose weight. burn more then you eat.

    For women, if you’re not on a diet, you should be eating about 1800 calories a day. If you’re looking to lose weight, cut back a few hundred calories from your diet, as long as you don’t go below 1200. [This isn’t healthy, and it slows your metabolism anyway.]
    Exercise everyday, and you can lose up to a few hundred more calories per day, depending on what you do.

    Oh, by the way, a pound is around 3,500 calories.

    Good luck!

    you need to calculate it, just look up calorie calculator on google. Thats your BMR or Basal Metabolic rate (calories per day) you need to increase your metabolism (the amount of calories burned in a day) and decrease caloric intake.

    BTW the acai berry and the tummy fat people above me are retarded ignore them. And the people who said you need to burn 3500 calories are also retarded, you burn at a rate you can. The only truth so far is that 3500 calories equals a pound. I wish people would use google before the answered questions on things they knew nothing about.

    it depends on your age and weight that how many calories you should actually burn. Also the type of activities you are carrying out will also specify that how much calories you are actually burning in a day! naturally i heard a person loses around 3000 calories a day and a average person should have 2000 calories a day!
    if you want to lose weight, convert your weight from kgs into pounds and then whatever is your target for eg. 120 . then start having 1200 calories so just add a zero and then thats the amount of calories you should have in a day and thats how u gonna lose weight!
    cheers 😀

    calories in vs calories out (burnt) is how you judge how you can lose weight.

    you’ll want to go 3/4 in to lose weight efficiently

    so 15 minutes of brisk walking = about 100 cals…

    the whole natural burn is variable it depends on metabolism, sex (male/female), sleep, hydration, etc.

    To burn one pound, one needs to burn 3 500 calories.

    in order to lose ONE pound of body fat you need to burn an extra 3500 Calories over what you eat/use up because of natural processes such as walking, breathing, digesting etc.

    To loose weight you can eat around 1200 calories or less depending on your activity levels. Calories burned through various activities can vary depending on weight. If the average cosumpton for a women is 2000 you can eat 1200 and loose weight and increase phsyical activity. Jogging and running can burn nearly 400 calories depending on how fast you run. that is just an example. If can loose weight without exercise if you eat less that 800 calories but I wouldn’t recommend a crash diet.

    Eating 1200 and increasing exercise especially Cardio, can help to burn the calories and as you are eating 800 fewer calories and burning a few hundred. Do something you really enjoy though so it is not a chore. You could loose up to 1-2 lbs more more each week.

    There are plenty or info on the web regarding calories, and calorie burn

    Since everyone is different so you need to create your own weight loss diet plan accordingly.

    The purpose of creating your own weight loss diet plan is crucial for those who losing weight. Every different weight loss diet plan is suitable for different people in order to lose weight effectively. Simply follow a general weight loss diet plan may not give you the effective fat loss results.

    First step is to create your own weight loss diet plan is to calculate your daily calorie maintenance level. It based on many factors and is different for each individual. For example, two people with same height and weight might find their maintenance level have hundreds of calories apart. If you want to create your diet plan effectively, you might need to calculate your daily calorie maintenance level more accurately. Basically you need to use your current calorie intake as the number of calories to start the calculations. Simply pick a day that you eat normally and keep track the number of calories in everything you consume. Do a summation of the calories for the day and average it out throughout 7 days. The average calories should be your daily calorie maintenance level.

    Second step to create an effective weight loss diet plan is by using your daily calorie maintenance level and subtract 500 from it. For example your daily calorie maintenance level is 3500, after subtract 500 it will become 3000. This new amount of calories is the daily calories you should take in for your own weight loss diet plan. By doing this, you would be in a calorie deficit that can lose weight effectively in short time.

    Now you have your own reference calorie maintenance level. You might want to break your weight loss diet into 5-6 smaller meals per day and spread those calories evenly among them. It will help to speed up your metabolism. It also will help keep you satisfied because you eat so frequently every 2-3 hours. Another benefit is it will supply your body with the nutrients it needs consistently throughout the day.

    Last thing you need to do is make sure that the calories you are consuming each day are coming from the right food sources. Protein for example is 1 gram contains 4 calories. Also keep in mind that 1 gram of fat contains 9 calories. One carb contains 4 calories. By referring to this calories level should give you good picture how to combine your effective weight loss diet.

    Of course there is no limitation on what type of food you want to include in your weight loss diet as long as it follows the suggest daily calorie maintenance level. Hence it gives you great freedom to create your own simple and customized weight loss diet.
