How Much is a Pound of Fat? [infographic]

If your goals for the new year look anything like the rest of America’s, then there’s a good chance you want to lose a few pounds.

What will it take to lose the weight? The numbers might surprise you. To lose just 1 pound of fat, you have to burn about 3,500 calories. According to MyFitnessPal.com, here are a few exercises you can do to burn 3,500 calories:

1. Run (6mph) for 4 hours and 17 minutes.
2. Walk (3mph) for 13 hours.
3. Ride a bike (14-16mph) for 4 hours and 20 minutes.
4. Do yoga for 17 hours and 10 minutes.

Of course, health is a balance of more than just exercise. You have to have proper nutrition. Eating just 1 order of large fries each day for a week adds up to 3,500 calories! It takes a long time to work that off!
