    Smart and Successful Weight Loss Takes Time

    If you're like most people who want to lose weight, you want to lose it quickly. But experts agree the most successful way to lose weight is gradually - just a pound or two a week for most people.

    To lose weight, you need to burn more calories than you eat or drink. Being more physically active helps your body burn more calories.

    • One pound equals 3,500 calories.
    • To lose one pound a week, you need to reduce the calories you take in by 500 each day.
    • To lose two pounds a week, you need to reduce the calories you take in by 1,000 each day.

    The key to losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight isn't changing the way you eat for just a little while. It's about changing what you eat and how you live every day.

    That sounds like a tall order. But making small, healthier choices each day can lead to big health gains – and weight loss.
