How Many Calories You Should Be Burning and Eating

This Simple Formula Will Help You Calculate How Many Calories You Need to Eat and Burn

When weight loss is your number one goal, it's easy to get caught up in all the calorie counting and carb tracking. But oftentimes, it's as simple as knowing how much to eat and burn. Instagram account susanniebergallfitness posted a handy breakdown with the message: "Burn more calories than your body uses. It's simple. But it's not easy."

If you consume a total of 1,700 calories in one day, you should be shooting to burn 2,000 in order to lose weight. This is what Susan calls a "modest calorie deficit." Eating more calories than you burn will result in weight gain, while eating as much as you burn will keep you at the same weight. A calorie deficit combined with protein, strength training, cardio, and a little patience are key to seeing results!
