Daily Calorie Needs
Whether you want to maintain your weight, gain weight or lose weight, you can calculate how many calories you should be eating on a daily basis. For all three calculations, start with determining how many calories you need to consume to maintain your weight.
To calculate it automatically, plug in your information below:
If you want maintain your weight, you're done!
If you want to gain weight, eat additional calories, being sure to account for any additional exercise, and incorporate strength training so the weight you gain is muscle instead of fat.
If your goal is to lose weight, subtract 250 calories per day, and burn an average of an additional 250 calories per day with exercise. Since there are 3500 calories in a pound, and 7 days in a week, you should lose an average of 1 pound per week! (250+250) x 7 = 3500. You can recalculate your calorie needs anytime, once you've lost at least 10 lbs and hit a plateau in your weight loss.
