HI, actually yes. You have to eat 2000 calories daily to lose 1 pound/week. Remember to keep the percentages, not just the calories amount.

Looks pretty good to me I try and plan my meals so that I eat about every three hours or so. If you can do that it will be even better. Depending on the program you are doing you may need to zero in on your protein/fat/carbs ratios. I normally shoot for a 40/40/20 split each day and adjust accordingly.

Could you elaborate on why you have to eat 2000 calories a day to lose 1 lb a week? What is your rationale for that?
