Today's Weight loss Tip: Know the amount of calories you need to burn daily or weekly to lose one pound. 

If you know exactly how much weight you want to loose, then you should know how much calories you need to burn a day or a week to drop off at least a pound. Hence the importance of knowing your daily calories limit.  The average daily intake of calories for a man is 2500 and for a woman is 2000.  It is not always easy to keep track.  But what I have found helpful is if you have a staple diet, then this can help, as you can check how much calories each food type has. Then if in any given day you go over, you will know how much you need to burn. A safe rate of weight loss is half to one (½ -1) pound per week.  You will need to burn an extra 250 calories per day to lose half (½) pound per week and 500 calories per day to lose 1 pound per week.  You can do this by walking 4 miles per hour for 60 minutes and doing 500 skips per day.  This has been a very effective method for me. So make the efforts today, you will be happy with the rewards. Great walking, lets go!
