“Lose 10 pounds in 1 week!”
You’re seeing these posts on social media. Are those 10 pounds of fat or water, though? Let’s look at the math….
One pound of fat is approximately 3,500 calories. 10 pounds of fat=35,000 calories. The average person consumes about 2,000 calories per day or 14,000 in 1 week.
14,000 daily calories minus 35,000 fat loss calories = a negative intake of 21,000
That’s a negative figure per day, folks.
That 10 pounds you’re losing is water. It’s not fat.
