If I consume 1,300 calories and burn 1,000 calories a day, would that help in weight loss? I don't quite get the whole Calorie Deficit thing. Because I hear that's the key to weight lost.
Okay, thank you because I wasn't quite sure. Though, should I take in more calories a day due to the total number of calories that I'll burn?
But if you are working out you'll burn more so eat more than 1300 but eat healthy
Okay , thanks and how much more? so I'll know exactly for my calorie intake limit.
Most women burn around 2000kcal a day. This is your basic matabolism, which depends on your weight but is which probably lies around 1300kcal, and all the other activities we do in a day. Working out adds to your calories burned.
In order to loose weight your calorie intake must be less than your calories burned.
Most health organizations recommend a calorie deficit of 500kcal a day, which will make you loose about a pound per week.
You can ofcourse create a calorie deficit by decreasing your intake : eating less. Or increasing yout output: working out.
A bit of both works the best :)
Read Scotty K's topic about calorie intake from Wednesday - it clear and simple tells you what to do when you exactly want to know how much calories to consume. Would link it but I don't know how...
