Hi, 5'5 and 180 lbs I'm trying to lose weight and be around 150 lbs how many calories do I need to eat. I'm cutting out sugar and rice and flour. I also work out in the gym. I have trouble balancing. ?
It depends.: I would aim for around 1500-1600 calories for weight loss, though it depends on how active you are. While cutting out sugars and starches can be helpful there are other high calorie foods. I recommend finding an online calorie tracker (there are many apps for apple and android (methyltestosterone) phones) that also allows you to account for exercise. It's easy to underestimate how many calories you consume. ...Read more
If I workout an hour everyday and burn 1000 calories. Do I need to eat 1000 calories to lose weight ? I'm currently eating only 1200 calories.
Excessive Workout: I am not sure what workout you are doing that you can burn 1000 calories in one hour! Your body needs to rebuild, repair and maintain. You need to have an intake of at least 1800 calories a day. Remember, when you burn those calories and then calorie restrict, your body thinks you are starving and will just reduce your metabolism to a minimal level. ...Read more
So if I am suppose to it 2000 calories a day in order to lose weight I need to eat 1500? Based on that 3500 cal to lose a lb rule
The actual # of: calories you take in will be your decision. Do remember that starvation dieting can backfire by dropping metabolic rate. If you reduced your caloric intake by 500 cal per day - your could lose a pound a week. If you reduced it by 250 calories - you could lose a pound in two weeks etc. 1/2 to 1 pound loss per week is a good goal. In general, don't recommend losing more than 2 lbs per week on ave. ...Read more

If 3500 cal =1lb and you need to eat like 1800 calories to get that energy how do you lose weight?1800-300cal(exercise)=
1500.Just need clarification.
To lose weight alone: you need 2 decrease caloric intake. A well balanced diet can do this. If you add an exercise program that includes cardio 1 day & a weight lifting on 2nd day and so on you will lose weight, but a program that includes hard work outs,while you lose fat you will gain muscle mass & strength & look more fit. But muscle is heavier than fat so weight loss may B negated, but you will look much better. ...Read more
If a calorie is a calorie, why do you need to eat healthy when trying to lose weight and not just eat less food?
A calorie is the amount of heat energy needed to increase a mililiter of water 1 degree centigrade, the calorie we talk about in foods is really a kilocalorie, that is the amount of energy needed to increase a liter of water 1 degree centigrade...
