Issue – We have to burn more calories than we consume, consistently

Multiply current weight X 15 =

The average number of calories/day to maintain your current weight

Subtract 500 (for 1/2 lb.) or 1000 (for 1 lb.) from that number =

The number of calories/day you should consume to lose from 1/2 pound to 1 pound per week.


200 (current weight) X 15 =

3000 calories/day to maintain current weight

Subtract 500 =

2500 calories/day to lose 1/2 pound per week

Subtract 1000 from 3000 =

2000 calories/day to lose 1 pound per week.


Men shouldn’t go below 1500 calories per day

Women shouldn’t go below 1200 calories per day
