Same as everyone: The "lose 3500 calories to drop a pound" idea now is overly simplistic. Disappointing reality is that when you begin to lose weight, your metabolism slows, hormonal &neurologic changes occur. The greater the progress you make the tougher it gets to lose more pounds--your body tries to defend its weight! You have to eat even fewer calories to maintain rate of loss. Ref: Washington Post, 7/29/2
