To lose weight you need to eat fewer calories or burn more calories by being active. It takes about 3500 extra calories to gain one pound of body fat. So, to lose one pound a week, you need to burn an extra 500 calories more or eat 500 calories less each day. Or, make smaller changes that you can stick with: eat 250 less calories and burn an extra 250 each day. Following Canada’s Food Guide and exercising regularly is the best way to lose weight and keep it off for good.
