Hi Pillboy - does sound a lot, but depends on your build, current weight, lifestyle etc. Rule of thumb is reduction of 3500 calories = 1lb loss in weight. So if the calculation is correct, then dropping 7000 cals a week shoudl give you your 2lbs weight loss. Tx
I've just quickly checked with my book on your stats and to maintain your current weight i've worked out a similar figure to you so as Tracey says if you drop 1000 calories a day, you should lose 2lbs per week
Yup it's entirely possible if you're that tall & heavy... Just think of it like carrying an extra 4 to 5 stone is maybe carrying an extra 50lb around with you - all day. Think of it in terms of sugar bags, and it's hefty. Think of that like a permanent gym, you have to use extra energy to do normal stuff. So it's entirely possible you burn 3000 a day.
I mean in my case at the moment I'm 13.5st, pretty active, and I am steadily losing 3lb a week eating 1500cals a day. It's poss.
