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

Possibly: You may possibly lose weight in that manner, but that is not a healthy way to control your weight, as this may ultimately slow your metabolism. Instead, decrease your total calories by 500-1, 000 per day, while eating 3 healthy meals & 2 healthy snacks per day. Also, exercise (walk or jog) 45 minutes per day, 5 days per week (speak with your doctor before starting any exercise program). ...Read more
