Hard to Say: You need to eat 3500 calories less in a given period (say 1 week) to lose a pound.

Don't do it: No one should eat less than 1200 cal per day without medical supervision. Starving yourself makes you lose muscle and decrease your metabolic rate so in the end people often don't lose or rebournd.. Eat 1200 cal of fruits, veggies, whole grains and lean protein daily. Each pound of weight is worth approx 3500 calories, so if you burn off 2200 cal and eat 1200/day, you will lose 2 lb/week. ...Read more
They say to loose weight you have to burn more than what you consume. But if you eat 1300 cals a day, you can't possibly burn more than 1300 cals a day?
Would it be alright to eat less than 1000 calories a day if you eat enough and are not starving yourself?
Depends: It depends upon your height, weight, overall health. 1000 calories a day is a very restrictive intake and can lead to significant weight loss, particularly when coupled with exercise. It is potentially risky. Make sure you get in adequate water, vitamins, minerals, fiber, and other nutrients to avoid damaging your body. Check w/your doctor and/or a good registered dietitian. ...Read more

If 2 food items have the same calories, but 1 has more fat grams than the other, do I assume the 1 with more fat grams will contribute to weight gain?
No assumptions: Most of what you read about different types of calories is mumbo-jumbo. Your weight is calories / energy in versus energy out. The key to lasting weight loss is being aerobically / physically active doing something you enjoy. Do this and your body will naturally guide you to smart food choices. ...Read more
Is it better to try putting some lean mass than to try losing fat if I'm at a normal weight and I'm a teen?
Some lean mass: If muscles are used repeatedly until they tire, but are not injured, then they will grow bigger and stronger. If one does not eat or drink more calories than he uses during exercise, then his body will burn up fat for fuel. However, if he drinks a big orange juice (about 300 calories) while exercising, and exercises away only 200 calories, he will still get chubbier even though he is exercising. ...Read more
Over weight people that wants to lose more than 90 k.g can they lose them by diet or they must do an operation.
Never: Your effort is to work with a dietitian to understand a correct diet for you.This would focus on having the right amount of slow release carbs in your diet that can be converted to sustain a normal blood sugar. Quick release sugars would only be needed for a rescue if your BS drops. If you take in more calories, you just get overweight, which makes figuring out how to eat more difficult. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
So much confusing information out there about how often to eat. Better to eat 5-6 small meals during the day or three main ones plus snacks?
Many small: Many small meals. The key is small. This way, you are getting a steady flow of energy and nutrients, your blood sugar does not spike and dip, and you reduce inflammatory protein spikes. Also, you need to eat healthy, whole foods, preferably cooked yourself, and organic & non-gmo when possible. ...Read more
Is it true that u shouldnt eat less than 1000 cal a day or ur matabolism will slow down? Im not obese but trying to lose weight.
Long term discipline: Keeping healthy weight requires long term discipline in eating a balanced diet. You can lose weight on a diet of 1, 000 to 1200 calories a day provided you are active and walk a good bit or do any other exercise along with caloric restriction. Anything more drastic is not practical to keep for the long term, so go at medium pace with a long term goal in mind. Plan to lose one pound /week or less. ...Read more
Is there a way for my hair to grow longer at a faster rate? For instance, can drinking more than 8 glasses of water a day help? If so, how much more?
No.: Hair growth is genetically determined and your hair follicles produce hair at the same rate unless you have a nutritional deficiency or an autoimmune disease. Drinking more water will not help. Make sure you are getting good nutrition to maximize hair growth. No supplements will boost the rate of growth unless you're missing certain vitamins or minerals in your diet. ...Read more
