Be Lost.


Most of us know that you need to cut calories to lose weight, but just how much cutting will it take to help you achieve your weight loss goals?

The simple answer: in order to lose 1 pound of weight, you need a 3500 calorie deficit. This caloric deficit can come from cutting calories from your diet, or expending more calories through exercise. Ideally, weight loss is best achieved by a combination of both.

In other words if your weight loss goal is 10 pounds in 3 months, you will need to a 35,000 calorie deficit over the course of those 3 months. Broken down, you will need to expend and cut an extra 389 calories every day.

Be Healthy. Be Balanced.
