## Introduction: Losing Weight and How Much You Lose Per Mile

I've been doing a little surfing and realised that alot of people really want to lose weight as fast and as healthy as possible so i decided to search for the perfect solution to help those in need and give them a handy tip.

Ok so you want to lose weight but u want to lose it fast well first you need to find out how much weight you lose if you walk a mile. (Seriously)

so either grab a calculator or use Google.

## Step 1: Calories You Burn Per Mile

**WEIGHT IN POUNDS X 2 / 3.5****Calories Per Mile**

If you only know your **WEIGHT** in **STONE** then **MULTIPLY** it by **14**

there are **14LBS **in** 1ST**

Heres an example of how to use the equation above**224 x 2 / 3.5 = 128**

## Step 2: How Many Miles It Would Take to Lose 1lb in Weight

Okay so now you know how to find out how many Calories you burn per mile so now we need to figure out how many miles you would need to walk in order to lose 1lb in weight.

this is a simple division but a lot of people don't know how many calories are in 1 pound.

if you want to find this out yourself then google "how many calories in pound" normaly find it on the first link. but for the sake of this instructable there are 3500 Kcal in 1 LB of weight.

so now we need to

**DIVIDE ****3 500** by **The amount of calories you lose per mile**

**3 500**remember the last step were i showed you this example

**( 224 x 2 /3.5 = 128 )**

well this time were going to take the total and divide it by 3500

**3 500 / 128 = 27.34375**

**3 500 / 128 = 27.34375**

## Step 3: Now We Know

Now we know how many miles a person weight 224lbs would have to walk in order to lose 1lb in weight.

But this doesn't include (Eating, Reading, Sleeping, Writing, Playing: games online or outside) and many more things because anything involved in Using your brain or moving your body burns calories.

Also Even 15 min jogs, 30 min power walk each day will increase the amount of calories you burn think of it this way

If a male weighing 224lbd burns 128kcal a mile and it takes 27 miles to burn 1lb of fat off just by walking.

Then think how much he would burn if he power walked 60mins, jogged 30mins or run 15mins a day think of running, jogging and walking as 3 types of gears.

First gear Walking – 27miles for 1lb

Second gear Jogging – 18miles for 1lb

Third gear Running – 9 miles for 1lb

this is just a rough idea of what it would be like

So get on a tredmill, get out in the street and start Getting Fitter and Healthier.

Aslong as you Eat Right and Excercise you can't go wrong

## Step 4: Equations

if you copy and paste these into Google ( fill in your weight where required )

you can find out how much you would lose per mile and how many miles it would take or if you prefer how many kilomteres**[HOW MANY CALORIES PER MILE]**

(**WEIGHT IN LBS** * 2) / 3.5**[WILL TELL YOU HOW MANY MILES TO LOSE 1LBS]**

3500 / ( (

**WEIGHT IN LBS*** 2) / 3.5)

**[WILL TELL YOU HOW MANY KILOMETERES TO LOSE 1LBS]**

**3500 / ( (**

**WEIGHT IN LBS*** 2) / 3.5 ) * 1.609344

Um... this did not make a lot of sense. You simply didn't explain this well enough, especially for people who aren't good with math. An instructable is meant to explain something to someone who knows NOTHING about the subject. You should have explained every little thing you could think of.
