    You or you've

    Hi all,

    Which is the right way of expression this thought? If both are ok, is there any difference between the implied meaning of each?

    1) Every calorie you burn is a calorie you lose.
    2) Every calorie you burn is a calorie you've lost.

    Thanks in advance

    You can say either of those. You can also say, "Every calorie burned (burnt) is a calorie lost."

    One doesn't really lose a calorie that is burnt. One utilizes it for heat or energy.
