    If you burn 500 more calories than you eat every day for a week,
    you should lose about 1-2 pounds.
    If you want to lose weight faster,
    you’ll need to eat less and exercise more.
    For instance, if you take in 1,050 to 1,200 calories a day,
    and exercise for one hour per day, you could lose 3-5 pounds in
    the first week, or more if you weigh more than 250 pounds.
    It’s very important not to cut calories any further —
    that’s dangerous.
    Limiting salt and starches may also mean losing more weight at first —
    but that’s mostly fluids, not fat.
    “When you reduce sodium and cut starches,
    you reduce fluids and fluid retention,
    which can result in up to 5 pounds of fluid loss when you get started,”
    says Michael Dansinger, MD, of NBC’s The Biggest Loser show.
