If you can burn 500 calories in one workout, you can expect to lose a fair amount of weight.
Whether you’re cutting 500 calories from your diet or finding a workout that guarantees a 500-calorie burn, 500 calories a day adds up to 3,500 per week and this is the magic number you need to hit in order to burn 1 pound of fat a week.
Although there is new evidence coming to light that questions this belief, it is still a good starting point and an ideal goal to set yourself when you’re first embarking upon your weight loss journey.
