For every pound you want to lose you’ll need to eliminate 3500 calories. The good news is that your body burns energy just by staying alive (each person’s calorie amount varies), so cutting a few hundred calories through diet and exercise will be enough to start moving towards being a slimmer you.
If you aren’t losing weight you may be underestimating the number of calories you eat in any given day. Track your meals and calculate your calories burned working out using a free fitness tracker tool online. One of Dr.Velie’s favorites is myfitnesspal.com.
