Just to clarify for all the newbies who may be reading. 3500 calories equate to approximately 1 pound of body weight. So if you eat 500 calories a day less than you burn (your Base Metabolic Rate plus exercise/activity) you will lose apprx. 1 pound per week. (500 cal. X 7 days = 3500 cal.) Your 1000 calorie/day deficit will double that so you will lose apprx. 2 pounds/week.

If you set up a weight goal on the Fitday Weght Goal tab it will calculate the deficit you need to attain each day to hit the goal.
