Hello, can you help me?
I need to know if there is a method/formula to calculate the quantity of
kilocalories to be deducted from the daily requirements to decrease a
certain body weight.
For example: a man, height 175 cm, weight 85 kg "normal constitution", daily
requirements 2000 kilocalories x day.
How many kilocalories he must deduct and how many days it takes to reach a
body weight of 75 kg (he must lose 10 kg).

Probably if a formula exists it could require more initial data.
Does it exist?
If it exists, is there anyone who can suggest it to me?
Thank you in advance to all of you who can help me and greeting to all the
News

As an American, I'm not terribly familiar with working in kilograms
will pounds help you?
A decrease of about 500 Kcals/day should result in about one pound
loss per week (3500 kcals).

Keep in mind that several studies have shown that most dieters
underestimate their portions by 30 to 50 percent, unless strictly weighing
their food. This leads to a lot of false claims of being unable to lose
at appropriate calorie levels.

Also, as I understand it, after the initial water weight loss of various
diets, it is very difficult to lose more than about one percent of
one's total weight in actual fat per week, unless exercising several
hours daily. Diets that promise faster weight loss typically lead to
substantial loss of muscle mass, along with fat, by being to low in
calorie or protein.
