I have read (and experienced) 7000, but considering the many other factors that reflect weight loss in general, 7500 is probably just as good a guide line. I definitely use it to reflect on. Think of this. A 100g (about 3½ oz.) chocolate bar is 550 calories, give or take. That is a fat gain of 73 grams (more than 2 oz!) just for that, or - alternatively a weight loss of 73 grams if you choose to say no thanks. It really puts things in perspective. Smile I find it hard to say no to chocolate, but I find it a LOT easier to say no to a 73 grams gain (or less lost).

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.
