A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.

Need to know how many calories to eat each day for weight loss? Calculate daily calories burned and eat less than that number! Increase calories burned by exercising. Choose an activity that burns 250 calories a day and eat 250 calories less and you’ll lose a pound a week!

There are other, more accurate ways to calculate using BMI, but these simple calculators will help you get started.

Nutrition experts recommend that you eat at least 1200 calories per day when losing weight. You want to keep your body from going into starvation mode and holding on to fat. If you eat fewer than 1200 calories, your body prepares for famine!

Please keep in mind that I am NOT a nutrition expert, although I have read extensively on the subject of fitness and nutrition. You will want to consult with your doctor before starting any weight loss or fitness plan.
