Did You Know: A Normal Amount of Weight to Lose a Week Is 1-4 PoundsBy Anthony Heredia | December 20th, 2010 | Category: Fitness Couture, Tips | 24 comments
Weight loss will also range for countless reason such as a male having more testosterone and muscle to burn more fat or a woman who just has a higher metabolism than an older woman but calories will remain the same. One pound of fat is equal to 3500 calories. Average weight loss is about two pounds a week, so that means 7000 calories. Now lets think about that. If the average sandwich is roughly 350 calories, if you lose two pounds you just shaved off 20 sandwiches. I bring up this example because some people feel that two pounds is not enough when actually it’s a lot and very realistic. You can definitely lose more through better eating or more exercise but two pounds a week is very healthy and normal.
