The average woman needs to eat around 2,000 calories per day to maintain her weight and 1,500 calories per day to lose half a pound per week. Meanwhile, the average man needs 2,500 calories to eat and 2,000 calories to lose half a pound per week. However, it depends on many factors.

Quarter pounds of calories
Since 3,500 calories equals roughly 0.45 kilograms of fat, it is estimated that you need to burn around 3,500 calories to lose half a kilo. So, in general, if you cut 500 to 1000 calories per day from your regular diet, you will lose 1 to 2 pounds per week.
For example, a Burger King Whopper with Cheese contains 710 calories.
