Let us take 100 calories per day and multiply by 365 days as an example. We will get 36,500 calories for the year.
When we divide 36,500 calories by 3500 we get 10.42 pounds of body fat.
And many people are consuming way more than 100 calories per day than their organisms are burning.
But the good thing is that we can use this information for losing unwanted body fat also.
For example the fact that there are 3500 calories in one pound of body fat gives us the chance to choose a weight loss program that will effectively burn unwanted body fat, leaving us with a lean, healthy body at the end of this program.
