Nutritional therapist Kerry Torrens says, "A general guide is to aim for fat loss of 1lb per week. To achieve this, you need to create a deficit of 500 calories a day from your normal eating plan. The best way to start is to keep a food diary so you understand exactly how much and what you're eating and drinking."
