if you consume 5 meals vegetables, fruits, meats, good fats but the calories amount to 2,500 and you need to eat 1,800 to lose weight
then you will still get bigger. Also to lose weight
1 pound of fat is exquivelant to 3,500 calories so if you cut your calories by 500 every day then you will lose 1 pound every 5 days. If your calorie requirement is 2,200 then you need to consume 1,700 calories each day.
Does this help you?
