3.5kg is pretty much 8lbs, so if you're doing 8 weeks of training you'll probably want to be losing about a pound a week. This can be achieved by having a calorie deficit of 500 each day (burning off 500 calories more than you consume), seven days a week. You'll have to monitor everything you eat to make sure you're doing things right.

If it was me, I might want to burn a bit extra just to be sure (metabolic rate differs from person to person), but providing you regularly weigh yourself to make sure you're on course, you should be fine.
