Here you go:
A pound is 3,500 calories, so if you are eating 2,500 a day, it is going to take a couple days to lose even one pound. If you do some minor eating on healthy snacks between main meals, your metabolism stays running. At main meals, taking out pasta, rice, cereal, bread, and potatoes and replacing them with fruits, vegetables, and meats cuts back on your calorie count a great deal. Exercise is never fun, but if you just go on a walk or run 2-3 times a week, that would help a lot. This process, if followed correctly, could help you lose a pound per day. This is what I am doing. And having started just yesterday, I am already feeling healthy. Good luck!
