  49. 51. What it Takes to Lose a Pound <ul><li>Body fat contains 3500 kcal per pound </li></ul><ul><li>Fat storage (body fat plus supporting lean tissues) contains 3300 kcal per pound </li></ul><ul><li>Must have an energy deficit of about 3300 kcal to lose a pound per week </li></ul>
  50. 52. Do the Math To lose one pound, you must create a deficit of 3300 kcal So to lose a pound in 1 week (7 days), try cutting back on your kcal intake and increase physical activity so that you create a deficit of about 500 kcal per day - 500 kcal x 7 days = - 3500 kcal = ~ 1 pound of weight day week loss in 1 week
