How many pounds does a man need to lose to drop 1 pants size.?

My pants are tightening and I had to go up to a 34 waist so I set about to drop to 148 from the 158 that I was from the lockdown and go to a solid 33 size. I carry my weight in the stomach area. Is that enough for a 5'9 man or is there something else to do other than burn off 10 pounds? Thanks.

    Could be 10 or could be more.  It depends not only on where your fat is currently stored but where your body chooses to take the stored fat as you lose weight.  There is no direct correlation between pounds and inches lost.+ Losing 10 pounds would be a healthy goal regardless of your waist size.
