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

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
