# Correlation between weight to loose, target number of days and steps to walk each day

The following specs describe my physique:

• Age: 23 Years
• Weight: 75 kgs
• Height: 5'9''

I'm a typical Indian IT professional with average diet. The only time I could spare to keep myself fit is at night. And the only activity I can do is walking.

I used this calculator to get the recommended weight for my physique and it came out to be about 68 kgs.

Now I'm looking for a correlation between the `weight` I want to loose, the `number of days` in which I want to lose it, and the total `number of steps` I need to walk each day to lose the targeted weight.

I searched a lot but could not get a satisfactory answer. I've also seen numerous posts explaining how 10,000 steps per day can help me lose weight. But I walk more than that in a day. And the weight loss it very slow.

• There are many key components missing from that equation like: Calorie Input, Macronutrient breakdown, Energy used to make a step, Metabolic rate (which Is NOT static) and so much more. Also consider using the second calculator on this page to get your "ideal weight" strengtheory.com/objective-strength-standards – Gunge May 25 '16 at 7:46

Your request is overly simplistic. That’s why you haven’t been able to find any reliable information. It’s difficult to develop the correlation you want because each of us is an individual capable of losing weight at our own individual pace. Having said that, it is still possible to lose the weight. You’ll need to set a realistic goal, and, expend more calories than you consume. That may mean adding more walking, or, bodyweight exercises to your regime. Additionally, I would suggest you write down the foods you are consuming to get a better idea of what your caloric intake is. It’s hard to know how much calories to cut if you don’t know what you are consuming. Start by keeping a nutrition diary.

Some things just don't fit into a nice neat formula.
