If you want to lose weight you need to either increase your daily activities and take up some exercise, or decrease your daily caloric intake. If you want to lose weight for good then reduce the calories that you have in your diet.

Science tells us that 1 pound of fat is equal to 3500 calories, so a daily calorie deficit of 500 should result in the loss of 1 pound of fat per week. In reality things don't quite work that efficiently!

Everyone is different and has a different lifestyle and because of this everyone will have a different daily calorie intake requirement. This calculator will give you a reasonable estimate of your current daily calorie intake. Using this you can calculate how many calories you can have to start reducing your weight.

Daily Calorie Calculator

By subtracting 500 calories from your daily intake value you will lose around 1 pound per week. This is based on the fact that one pound of fat is equal to 3500 calories, and 7 days worth of 500 calories = 3500 calories.
