This is probably one of the top questions for anyone embarking on a new diet and fitness plan. Follow these simple instructions to determine the approximate number of calories you should be eating to lose weight. To lose a pound a week, you must create a 3,500-calorie deficit, or burn 500 calories per day more than you eat. Here is an example of how a 150-pound personal would achieve that:

Add a zero to your body weight (150 + 0) = 1500

Add 20% for extra daily activity = 300

Daily caloric rate = 1800

Subtract 500 calories to lose a pound a week = 500

Total daily calories = 1300

So, to lose a pound a week, a 150-pound person needs to create a 500-calorie deficit from 1800 calories either by exercising or eating less. Keep in mind that this is an approximate scale. Body type and fitness level play a part. Only you cant ruly tell if your diet is in line with your weight loss while still giving you enough energy. Just don’t go below 1200 calories per day. As you get into better shape, you’ll need to eat more to fuel your extra muscle.
