Hi, and thank you for your question!

In general, each pound lost represents 3,500 calories. So, for instance, if you cut your calories by 500 calories a day, you should lose 1 pound a week.

In terms of the specific answer to your question, it depends on the following things:

Are you female?
How old are you?
How tall are you?
And what is your level of activity? (low, moderate, high)
