There are 3,500 calories in 1 pound of fat. I recommend that if you want to lose weight to do it at a rate of 1 pound per week (500 calories under your maintenance calories per day). You can however do it at a rate of 2 pounds per week (1000 calories under your maintenance calories per day). Losing over 2 pounds per week is not recommended as it may cause negative side-effects to your health. This is a marathon, not a sprint. The goal is to help you reach your goals in the safest and most effective way possible. Keep track of your progress using a digital body-weight scale and a fitness app.
