from Verywell

One pound of fat is equal to about 3500 calories. That means that if you eat an extra 350 calories of food a day, which is about equal to a large piece of cake or a medium milk shake, you would gain an extra pound every 10 days (350x10). Keep your diet the same, but burn an extra 350 calories a day by exercising more, then you could lose a pound in about 10 days.
