So hwo many calories does the average adult male use up in a day? And no heaving lifting or really tough work but no sitting around at a desk all day or anything. And how many calories would you need to use up to get rid of a pound.

The energy needs of a human being doing nothing but staying alive is known as the 'basal metabolic rate.' There are numerous websites on the topic, including calculators like this one which can answer your question:

A pound of fat is equivalent to about 3,500 Calories.
