"Passion Attraction Triumph Unbeaten"
"I am passionate about fitness and helping others becomes as passionate. My focus is always on helping others to understand how to adopt health, fitness and a nutrient-rich clean eating diet as a lifestyle rather than a quick fix”. Thanks to God for making this happen!

Article # 520. How Many Calories Should Be Burned to Lose 1 Kilogram of Weight?
Weight loss requires that you burn more calories than you consume over time. You can calculate your rate of calorie-deficit weight loss in either pounds or kilograms.
Your body will burn some calories just to support life through breathing and other autonomic functions. You burn more calories through physical activity; exercise, both cardiovascular and strength-training, will increase the number of calories you burn daily and widen the deficit.
To lose one pound you must burn 3,500 calories more than you eat. If you have a calorie deficit of 500 per day, you will lose one pound per week.
One kilogram equals 2.2 pounds. To lose one kilogram of fat you must burn 7,700 calories more than you eat: 3,500 x 2.2 = 7,700.
