Calories count: As a guide, your target weight could be around 180. Do you know what your average daily calorie intake is? Consulting a dietician for 1 visit could be helpful in determining your ideal daily calorie intake depending upon your level of daily activities.You have to eliminate 500 calories every day for a week to lose 1 pound of body weight.
