How many calories a day does it take to maintain 400 pounds?
In respect to this, how many calories should I eat a day to maintain weight?
The average woman needs to eat about 2,000 calories per day to maintain her weight, and 1,500 calories per day to lose one pound of weight per week. Meanwhile, the average man needs 2,500 calories to maintain, and 2,000 to lose one pound of weight per week. However, this depends on numerous factors.
Likewise, people ask, how many calories does it take to maintain 500 lbs?
Since there are 3,500 calories in one pound of body weight, you have to reduce your daily intake by 500 to lose one pound per week.
(Thus, a 120-pound moderately active person needs to eat about 1,680 calories--1,200 plus about 480 calories for activity--to maintain his or her weight, while a sedentary 150-pound person would need to consume about 1,800 calories daily--1,500 calories plus 300--to keep the bathroom scale steady.)
