The result will be roughly the number of calories you need to maintain your present weight, she says. To lose one pound a ,.„..., „„„ your total calories 500 each day; to lose two pounds, eat 1000 less calories a day. To gain a pound a week, add 500 more calories than you spend each day, she advised.
