Calories are energy factors, and you burn them in several ways:
So you start burning fat when actually the calories that you consume are less than the energy you expand during the day.
It means, that for example if your body at Rest requires let's say 2000 calories per day , and u do the following (an example):
This is how you start using fat from ur body to compensate, and to loose 1 pound of fat per week u need a deficit of 3500 calories per week ( which is 500 calories deficit per day. it is not recommended to have more than 700 cal deficit per day for health purpose).
