Losing weight requires creating a calorie deficit, which means you need to consume fewer calories than your body burns in a day. The number of calories you need to eat to lose weight depends on several factors, including your current weight, age, gender, height, and activity level. A safe and sustainable rate of weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week, which requires a calorie deficit of 500-1000 calories per day.
To determine how many calories you need to eat to lose weight, you can use an online calculator that takes into account your personal information and activity level. Once you have your daily calorie needs, you can create a calorie deficit by reducing your calorie intake, increasing your physical activity, or a combination of both.
It is important to note that consuming too few calories can be harmful to your health and slow down your weight loss progress. It is recommended to not go below 1200 calories per day for women and 1500 calories per day for men.
