How Many Calories to Lose 1 kg of Excess Weight?

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

If you frequent gym and often hop on to the cardio machine, calories calculation cannot be unfamiliar to you. A normal running? on treadmills for 30 minutes will kick away about 200-400 calories, depending on your age and the intensivety of your workout.

So? the question is do you know how much calories you need to acheive to get rid of 1 kg of weight from your bulky body? How detail is your planning will describe how serious you want to achieve your goals and thus increase the success rate in achieving your goal.

So here is the figure

1 pound = 3500 calories.

1 pound = 2.5 kg.

1 kg = 8750 calories.

Calories burned during exercise is affected by body weight, intensity of workout, conditioning level and metabolism.

Wao the figure look rather scary right. Lets make it simple if we want to have a 0.5kg weight lost per session which is equal to 4375. On average, a person? will burn around 2500-3000 on normal daily activities. So you are left with about 1400 calories to kill in your gym session.

Lets see 45-50 minutes running on treadmill will easily burn 500 calories, provided you are doing it a reasonable speed with level or incline at least 1.5-2.

After the running,? do some weights which particularly help in shaping some body areas which never fail to store stubborn fats. Tip is do 3 additional reps per set with the same weight.

Also, if you are using weights, your body is becoming denser. The fat is shedding while the muscle is building, so looking at the scale can be deceiving.You can make weight loss quicker and easier by increasing your metabolic rate and burning more calories

Metabolic Rate is the rate at which the body burns up calories.This explains why that ?lucky’ person across the table from you doesn’t get fat from all that junk food.

The ?thermogenic effect’ described as meal-induced heat production – the calories burned in the process of eating, digesting, absorbing and using food.

You can influence all these factors, and speed up your rate of burning calories using some, or all, of the following tactics:

1) Build Muscle


Increase the amount of muscle in your body. For every extra pound of muscle you put on, your body uses around 50 extra calories a day. In a recent study, researchers found that regular weight training boosts basal metabolic rate by about 15%. This is because muscle is ?metabolically active’ and burns more calories than other body tissue even when you’re not moving.

Training with weights just 3 times a week for around 20 minutes is enough to build muscle. Not only will you be burning more calories, you’ll look better – whatever your weight.

2) Move Around


Although the average person burns around 30% of calories through daily activity, many sedentary people only use around 15%. Simply being aware of this fact – and taking every opportunity to move can make quite a dramatic difference to the amount of calories you burn.

3)Aerobic Exercise


As well as the actual amount of calories burned during exercise – studies have shown that sustained, high-intensity exercise makes you burn more calories for several hours afterwards.

4) Eat Little and Often


There is some evidence to suggest that eating small, regular meals will keep your metabolism going faster than larger, less frequent meals. There are two reasons why meal frequency may affect your metabolism. Firstly, levels of thyroid hormones begin to drop within hours of eating a meal, and metabolism slows. Secondly, it may be that the thermogenic effect of eating several small meals is slightly higher than eating the same amount of calories all at once.

Provided your small meals don’t degenerate into quick-fix, high fat, high sugar snacks, eating little and often can also help to control hunger and make you less likely binge.

Keep up the good work!

  6. At present i am 76kg and a height of 168cms . I have lost 2 kilograms of weight due to running since ten days. I am running 3k and walking 4k . Now my first doubt is that, Is it fine to reduce 2kgs in ten days ?
    And the next doubt is that the entire 2kgs are from body fat or muscle fat ?

  8. 1 kg = 2.2 lb (pounds).
    Since 1 lb = 3500 cal, thus
    1 kg = 2.2 lb x (3500 cal / 1 lb)
    Therefore 1 kg = 7700 cal.
    The calculations in the article are only incorrect because they messed up the definition that 1 kg = 2.5 (or 2.2) lb. If you use 2.5, then 1 kg will in fact be 8750 cal.

  9. Intensivety isn't a real word! I believe you were looking for intensity...?

    And as mentioned multiple times above, 1 kg = 2.2 lb, not 2.5 lb

  10. A lot of people here skipped math in school..

    If 1 Kg = 2.2 lbs then you need to DIVIDE the kg on lbs to get what kg is PER lbs, 1 kg / 2.2 lbs = 0.45 Kg PER lbs.

    Since 3500 cals are given per ONE lbs, the cal per KG would be 3500 times 0.4545.., or 1591 cal PER KG.

    Or simply divide 3500 on 2.2 lbs to get PER KG (since there are 2.2 kg per one lbs): 1591.

    Or this way: Since there are more per one lbs than per one kg (= 2.2 kg per 1 lbs) the 3500 is also given as "more" - it can therefor not become higher when converted to kg since kg is given in a lesser unit than lbs (you need 2.2 kg to get one lbs).

    Thos who get to 8750 do it wrong. Period. They multiply 2.2 kg with the lbs which ALREADY is multiplied for this - DIVIDE it to get back to kg.

    One more time:

    1 lbs = 2.2 X Kg, to get back: 1 lbs / 2.2 = 1 KG.

    So to get KG - DIVIDE (3500 / 2.2).

    This is elementary school math (or at least it was..).

    Still any doubt?

    1. Actually brother , instead of critisizing other people for there math , how about you check your own coversion rate!!
      1kg = 2.2 lbs
      not the other way around
      So to convert "3500cal/lbs" you
      Multiply by how many pounds in a Kg "2.205"

      And you end up with "7716 cal per kg "


      So much for Elimentary school math??!!!

    4. Sorry mate, you over complicated it and got it wrong. If 3500 is 1 pound and its 2.2 pounds per kilo the its 3500 * 2.2.

  23. You're all wrong, to burn 1 kilo it takes 3500, and idk about the pounds... If losing one kilo would take that much, then it would take people years to lose weight.... I consume 900 calories a day and I burn like 1500, nevertheless, i'm eating 300 less than I should so I think I might be burning 1800 a day :)) tip: drink loooooooooots of water guys, enjoy! :)

  24. Your math is Totally skrewed, dude! I'm really grateful for the 1 pound = 3500 calories, but the rest just hurt my neurons! Except the math error (huge) we really appreciate you taking time and consuming energy to write this article.
    And where did you get that 1800 kcal a human consumes a day? As far as i know it's 600-800 doing nothing and all above it depends on what you do/exercise..
