If im on a 1200 calorie diet, how many calories will I have to burn in order to lose weight?

1201: You lose weight by burning more calories (which are stored as fat) than you take in. If you burn 1200 and take in 1200, it's a break even. If you take in 1200 but burn 2000, you're body will go to stored fat to get the additional 800. Bear in mind it takes 3500 calories to create a pound of fat, and a 3500 deficit to lose a pound.. Your goal should be slow, steady decrease. ...Read more

Can you tell me how to lose a lot of weight and how much weight will i lose it 2 weeks eating only 800 calories a day?

Varies.: 3500 calories is 1 lbs. Your metabolism and the exercise you do daily will add up the calories the body will burn daily. If during exercise you burn 300 calories which is walking 3 miles. And your body burns 1400 calories in metabolism daily. You will have 1700 calories burned daily. 800-1700 = 900 calories burned daily = 4 days to lose 1 pound. which is 4 lbs in 16 days or about 2 weeks. ...Read more

Can you tell me how much weight can I lose eating 900 calories a day?

Note:: Restricting calories below your base metabolic rate triggers starvation mode for the body which causes you to overeat when food is available. You may lose a little weight at first but then the body will try to store fat to fight starvation--you'll gain it back and it will be harder to lose. Best to work with a nutritionist/health coach on a life plan for steady healthy sustained weight management. ...Read more

Please tell me how much weight i need to lose every month to lose weight at a healthy pace?

This varies: For most people, 1-2 lbs per week is safe. So, 4-8 lbs per month would be about right under most circumstances. But, it's superior to focus on healthful behaviors (eating right and exercising in enjoyable ways) than to focus on the scale. Weight does not tell the complete story of health. Also, when people are trying to lose weight they'll notice that their weight varies up and down. Don't stop. ...Read more
