Use this calculator to determine how many calories your body needs in a day to maintain your current weight.
YOUR BASAL METABOLIC RATE (BMR):
YOUR DAILY CALORIE NEEDS TO
MAINTAIN CURRENT WEIGHT: 2152 Calories
Sedentary Lifestyle Little or no exercise.
Lightly Active Lifestyle Light exercise or sports 1 - 3 days/week.
Moderately Active Lifestyle Moderate exercise or sports 3 - 5 days/week.
Very Active Lifestyle Hard exercise or sports 6 - 7 days a week.
Extra Active Lifestyle Very hard exercise or sports 6 - 7 days a week.
To lose weight, eat 500-1000 fewer calories per day than calculated, or as an alternative, eat 15-20% fewer calories than calculated. If you increase your physical activity, you can consume more calories and still lose weight as long as you eat fewer calories than calculated.
Note: Leaner bodies need more calories than less lean bodies. This calculator is very accurate in all but the very muscular (will under-estimate calorie needs) and the very fat (will over-estimate calorie needs).
Sustainable Weight Loss
Regardless of your current weight or the history of your body composition, healthy body-weight aspirations are always possible with the right application of efforts.
