    How many calories are in one pound of fat?

    • A.

      2300

    • B.

      3500

    • C.

      200

    Correct Answer
    B. 3500
    Explanation
    One pound of fat contains 3500 calories. This is because it is estimated that one pound of body weight is equal to approximately 3500 calories. This means that in order to lose one pound of fat, a person would need to create a calorie deficit of 3500 calories through a combination of diet and exercise. Conversely, to gain one pound of fat, a person would need to consume an excess of 3500 calories.
