Mathematics of Weight Loss (From BodyBugg) ;-)
Wednesday, September 08, 2010
Just a FYI For myself from my weekly BodyBugg update:
If your goal is to lose 10 pounds in 5 weeks, you must burn 35,000 more calories than you intake during this period. Therefore your average daily deficit must be 1,000 calories. Here’s the math:
One pound of weight from body fat equals 3,500
calories. Multiply 10 pounds by 3,500 and you get
35,000 calories. If you divide 35,000 calories by 35
days, you get 1,000 calories per day.
