How Many Calories To Lose Weight?

I currently weigh 227lbs. and eat 3100 calories.

To weigh 170lbs. the calorie calculator says I need to consume 2559 calories.

Is it safe to say that by eating 2559 calories a day, it will help me get to 170lbs? (Thus cutting my calorie intake by 600 calories/day.)


Yes, you’re exactly right!

There are 3500 calories stored in one pound of body fat, so if you reduce your intake by 600 calories/day for a week, you should lose just a little over 1 pound a week (600 x 7 = 4200 calories).
