Question by AmbulanceVoter: Can you explain the caloric cycle and how many calories I should intake/use a day to lose weight?
I know my body burns about 3000 calories without any exercise so my caloric intake always needs to be above that number because if it isn’t I won’t lose weight, my body will go into starvation mode and keep everything I eat as fat. I also know that in order to lose weight I will need to expend/exercise more calories than I take in. What is my optimum caloric intake (or how can I calculate it) for a day and optimum expenditure to lose weight as fast as these people like on “I used to be fat” or “Heavy”?

Question by John K: will just counting calories help me lose weight?
this is a claim a person made about fat and calories-
“A calorie is a measure of energy. There really isn’t such a thing as a “fat calorie”.
Carbohydrates and protein are about 4 calories/gram and fat is 9 calories/gram. So fat is a lot more calorie-dense.
But your body burns any kind of calorie the same way. You could technically live on a diet of all fat and not gain weight if you didn’t exceed the amount of calories you need. It wouldn’t be healthy for other reasons, but you mainly just need to watch your calorie intake if you’re watching your weight.”
Question by : Your body’s “starvation mode”: caloric intake or net calories?
There’s a lot of hype about crash dieting and how it can send your body into its starvation survival mode by retaining fat, thus making you gain, rather than lose, weight. The number that seems to be agreed on is about 1200 per day for a grown woman as the line between a healthy diet and “starvation”. Does anyone know if this is simply concerned with the number of calories your take in during the day or if it’s a “net calories” sort of equation? For instance, if I’m someone who averages around 1300 calories on my summer diet but I go to the gym on weekdays and burn off 400 calories, is my body still feeling that it’s “starving” as I’ve worked off a significant portion of my caloric intake for the day?
Question by Treehugger!: Calories, Fat calories… Good calories? Are the calories from fruits and veggys good and …?
When you see “Good calories” Or just calories it confuses me, Is a calorie from carb/protein/Fiber easier to burn then a fat calorie?
Question by ebillar: Calories vs. fat: How does Alli work i it doesn’t address calories?
I’m confused about the role of fat grams and calories in weight loss. Most people say “cut calories and burn calories” by eating less and exercising, respectively. But makers of drugs like Alli seem to say they block fat grams. Do they affect caloric intake at all? How does decreasing fat grams compare with decreasing calories? Thanks.
I know that there are approximately 3,600 calories in a pound of fat, but when I’m measuring calories?
Question by jim: I know that there are approximately 3,600 calories in a pound of fat, but when I’m measuring calories?
that I burn, how do I know where they’re coming from. In other words, when the treadmill reads “500 calories” how do I know if they’re calories burned from fat, sugar, carbs etc.
Obviously I want to maximize the number of calories burned from fat. Does anyone know a method to do this?

Question by Austin: When people say “burn calories” do you really burn them or what happens?
When you lose weight you take some of the fat off and fat is just stored calories so what happens to the calories, are they really “burned?”
Answer by Marissa C
Calories are a source of energy. When someone says that they “burned” a certain amount of calories what they mean is that they exerted their body physically and used the energy from the calories. In another words, those calories will not be stored within the body for later use.
Question by Anna G: How many Calories are burned in a situp or crunch? Or would you have to do to lose a pound of fat.?
I have a flabby belly it is the only “fat” on me. I would like to lose it so my pants would fit better and I could expose my belly with confidence. Any exicerse to burn belly fat and create muscle would me helpful.
I would also like to build muscle elsewhere on my body. So any recipes for homemade protien shakes would be helpful as well. Please provide the calorie information as well.
