To lose weight To take off one pound per week, you'll need to reduce calories by 500 per day (one pound of body fat equals about 3,500 calories.) Calorie reduction is both difficult to achieve and a stress on the body, try eating 250 calories less per day and exercising enough to burn 250 calories (eg: jog/walk 2.5 miles). An easy method is simply to remove one portion of food per day. It can be hazardous to your health to significantly change your caloric intake, consult a doctor before starting any diet that changes your calories more than 25% of your maintenance rating, or is below 1400 calories per day.
General information A fast and easy method to determine calorie needs is to use total current body weight times a multiplier.

This method ignores activity level of body type.

Weight/Fat loss: 12 - 13 calories per lb. of bodyweight
Maintenance: 15 - 16 calories per lb. of bodyweight
Weight gain: 18 - 19 calories per lb. of bodyweight

If you are planning on gaining or losing weight, you should consult a doctor and nutritionist to ensure you do not complicate your health. This page provides some helpful generalized information related to caloric needs and weight, however it should not be used as true for all individuals.
