If you want to lose weight, without throwing your body out of balance, and maintain your weight loss here is what you do: eat a balanced diet of less calories than you expend each day.
1-lb is 3,500 calories. For every 3,500 calories you eat over what you expend - you gain a pound. For every 3,500 calories you burn over what you consume - you lose a pound. For example - if you eat 3,500 calories per day and only burn 2,850 - you'll gain a pound every week. If, on the other hand, you burn 2850 calories per day and only consume 1200 ... you should lose about a pound every 3 days.
There will be some fluctuations .... but a balanced diet will give you sustained weight management.
