Losing Weight 3500 kcal = 1 lb of body weight Example of how the body deals with positive energy balance: 1. You consume an extra chocolate-chip cookie (~100 kcal/ea) every day for 40 y. 2. The number of extra kcals you would consume would be ~1.5 million 100 kcals x 365 d x 40 y =1,460,000 kcals 3. Assume 3500 kcal/pound body wt and you would estimate weight gain to be 417 pounds in 40 years. 1,460,000 kcals  3500 kcals/pound = 417 pounds 4. In reality, if you ate these extra kcals you would probably only gain ~ 6 pounds of weight.
