How many calories a day do you have to burn to lose weight?

Your goal is to lose weight but you don't know how to organize every day to reach that goal? There are some recommendations you can take into account to lose weight.

The bad news is that there is no magic recipe to lose weight. To achieve that goal you must take care of your diet and exercise.

 You may need to follow a diet to lose 12 pounds in a month or you just need to modify some habits.

In general terms, a person who is average weight and eating a balanced diet will need to burn approximately 3500 calories to lose one kilo of fat. This, involving daily exercise, means that if you want to lose two pounds of fat in a week, you will need to burn about 600 calories a day.

Weight loss can be achieved by subtracting calories from your daily diet. For example, if the ideal for you is to eat 2,000 kcal per day, eating 1,500 kcal per day will help you lose that weight in 14 days.

If we manage to eliminate 3,500 calories per week, in total we will be losing a pound of weight without having to submit to anything more strict. Of course, to achieve the goal, we must lead a healthier lifestyle. And, if possible, supplement energy expenditure through exercise.
