It takes just as much time to gain weight as it does to lose it, 3500 calories. When gaining weight, you hit plateaus, the same as you do when losing. Neither happen overnight, but habits contribute to both. It isn’t inconceivable to burn a pound a week–this is extremely doable with only a few small changes in your life.
And here’s a little math…
Typically, a person can ingest in calories about 10x their weight and still lose weight (e.g., a 200 lb person can consume 2000 calories in a day and be slightly under their daily requirement for weight maintenance).
Losing one pound per week equals a loss of 52 pounds in one year–AMAZING!
