Weight Loss Calculator
If your goal is to lose weight then you need to set a realistic time line. This calculator will help you determine how long it will take you to lose a certain amount of weight.
The safest approach resulting in long term weight maintenance is to lose 1-2 pounds per week. In order to lose 1 pound of fat you need to cause a deficit of 3500 calories or 7000 calories if you choose to lose 2 pounds per week.
This means you must cause a deficit of 500-1000 calories per day. This is not realistic using dieting alone, and that is why exercise is such a vital part of weight loss. It is healthy to try and cut 250-500 calories per day through dieting and burn the additional 250-500 calories through effective workouts that raise your metabolic rate.
Type in your goal weight below and see how long it will take you to reach your target if you can burn and cut your calories by 500-1000 per day. If you have a large amount of weight to lose you can aim for 1000 calories per day, but if you are within 10 pounds of your goal weight then aim for 500 calories per day.
