Well it is really about how much you burn more than how much you eat. 3500 calories equals one pound so if you want to lose 2 pounds in a week you can do the math but that will have to be the number you burn on top of what you take in. If you eat 2000 calories a day then you would have to burn 1000 calories a day. Obviously if you eat fewer calories the less you will have to burn off. However, DO NOT STARVE YOURSELF! Eat sensible and portion control is key.
Once all this is taken into consideration you will know how much you have to eat a day to lose the few pounds you desire to lose. Here are a few websites that help me out:
Calorie Calculator - Daily Caloric Needs
this one helps me to know roughly how much I should eat depending on my age and activity level.
The Most Accurate Calories Burned Estimator
this one is a good second opinion for how many calories a certain exercise burns...If you donít trust FITDAY that is.
I hope this helps you reach your mini goal.
