You need to consume fewer calories than you burn in a day in order to lose weight. It does depend on your metabolism.
You need to lose or burn 3,500 calories to lose one pound of body fat.
I think you're supposed to limit it to 1200 Calories a day. Don't hold that against me though I'm not 100% on that. Research it.
