# Question: What Is A Good Calorie Burn Goal Per Day?

## How many miles does it take to lose 3500 calories?

How many miles are 10,000 steps.

On average, 10,000 steps are going to come out to be roughly 5 miles.

So assuming you weigh 180 pounds, then yes, by simple mathematics, 100 calories x 5 miles equals 500 calories.

Over a week, that becomes 3,500 calories..

## Is 3500 calories a day a lot?

There’s a longstanding belief that 3500 calories is equal to a pound of weight. While that’s not entirely true (that number comes from a 1958 study that’s long been debunked), 3500 calories is a lot, especially when you consider that most active men are encouraged to eat 2800-3000 calories per day.

## How much weight will I gain eating 3500 calories a day?

An increase of at least 500 to 1000 calories each day will promote a one to two pound weight gain per week. It takes an extra 3500 calories to gain one pound of body weight.

## Can you lose weight eating 1 000 calories a day?

1 pound (around 0.5 kg) is about 3500 calories (5), so if you stick to a 1000 calorie meal plan, and your normal needs are 2000-2500 calories per day, you may burn as much as 7000-10 500 calories per week, thus losing from 2 to 3 pounds (1-1.5kg) a week.
