Hello there. I can understand your concern. It's 2000kcals and not just 2000 calories. It's a problem that everybody forgets the suffix and mentions it as just calories when it has to be kilocalories. Therefore you take it as 152kcals. Ideally a healthy man requires about 2500kcals a day. To reduce weight you should take less calories than daily requirement and burn more than what you have taken in to reduce weight. Best regards. Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.
