Ok, I feel a little stupid asking this, and I thought I knew the answer, but now I'm doubting myself. If I eat 1,800 calories a day, how many calories should I be burning during a workout to lose a pound a week? ( I think a pound is 3500 calories but please correct me if I'm wrong) I had a metabolism test done several years ago, and she told me that basically, with my metabolism, just sitting around, my body will burn about 1,800 calories a day. So, based on that, I should have to burn 500 calories/day (during workout) to lose 1lb/week. Is that right?Answer Question

If it's been years since you had the test done, then you need to re-evaluate and make sure you've got an accurate count of how many calories you need per day, as it will change over time. Use an online calculator to figure this, then you will need to burn off and/or cut the caloric intake by 500 every day to lose one pound per week. Here's an example of the calculator:
