Calories per Pound of Fat

There are 3500 calories per pound of body fat. In order to lose just one pound of stored fat we need to burn off 3500 extra calories, sounds simple, yet so many dieters claim to cut enough calories per pound each week but hardly lose any fat.

A pound of fat stored on your body is equal to about 3500 calories. Whenever you take in more calories than your body needs for energy each day, then you will store the extra calories as fat.
