This varies from : Person to person. The medical model of weight loss = calories consumed - calories lost through rest and activity is giving way to a new model that takes into account the intestinal micro biome which represents all of the gut flora in your body. I would recommend reading belly fat effect by mike mutzel. Best wishes.
