The only thing I would add is that the burned must be more than the intake. Not just reduce your intake by 500 per day. If you eat 2500 now and reduce that to 2000 but only burn 1800 (just using numbers) you still won't lose weight. You need your burn to be more than your calories in. Wow I took the long way around that I hope it makes sense.
