lol wut.

unlike you, I'm not making crap up. since you seem to think I'm arbitrarily throwing info out, perhaps info from one of the foremost medical centers in the U.S. will enlighten you:

Tipping the scale: Cutting calories

Because 3,500 calories equals about 1 pound (0.45 kilogram) of fat, you need to burn 3,500 calories more than you take in to lose 1 pound. So if you cut 500 calories from your typical diet each day, you'd lose about 1 pound a week (500 calories x 7 days = 3,500 calories). It isn't quite this simple, however, and you usually lose a combination of fat, lean tissue and water. Also, because of changes that occur in the body as a result of weight loss, you may need to decrease calories further to continue weight loss.
