So I'm currently on a calorie controlled diet, I'm 5 foot 9, 82kg. I got to the gym 6 times a week, where I do a mixture of medium to high intensity exercises and strength exercises. I also walk about 3-4 miles a day.
I'm currently aiming for 1500 calories and use myfitnesspal to ensure I get a good spread of protein, fats and carbohydrates.
Apparently, a net loss of 3500 calories is equivalent to one pound of fat.
If the number of calories I need to maintain work is 2000 calories, and I'm aiming or 1500. If I burn an extra 500 calories a day. That gives me a deficit of 1000 calories a day. Does that mean I'll lose about a 1lb of weight every 3.5 days? (ideal conditions obviously)

In theory, but weight loss isnt linear and calorie counts need to be accurate.
