# Basic Fat Loss Math (Advanced Nutrition)

Would you like to be 50 pounds lighter just 12 months from now?

Can you image how you would look?

You’d look like a whole new, younger person.

It’s actually much easier than you think, and I’m not talking about invasive, costly surgery, or grueling routines.

All it takes is losing one pound each week.

One single pound.

Let’s break it down mathematically. A pound is 3,500 calories—spread that over 7 days and you need a 500-calorie deficit each day to lose 1 pound in a week.

Your 500-calorie deficit can be done by a combination of increased calorie exertion (exercise) as well as a decrease in calories consumed (eating less).

First, record your normal weekly exercise – look at everything from walking to participating in sports to exercising in the gym. This is your starting point. From here you’ll need to burn an additional 3500 calories on top of your normal weekly exercise.

If you don’t currently exercise, then any new activity will count towards your 3500-calorie weekly goal.

Second, record your normal weekly food intake – this may be an eye-opener when you see how many calories you eat in a day. Record everything honestly, since you are only cheating yourself by not recording everything. Calculate the total number of calories that you eat in an average day.

Now divide the 3500 calories between your activity list and your food list. You could choose to eliminate 1000 calories each week and burn off an additional 2500. Or you may decide to burn 3000 calories and eat 500 fewer calories.

Losing 50 pounds in 12 months is very possible. Simply use the tips above to create your daily 500 calorie deficit and you’ll be shedding the weight in no time.

When you work with me, there’s a good chance that those 50 pounds will come falling off in less than 12 months.

That wouldn’t be so bad, would it?
