Calorie calculator calculator will calculate your daily calorie needed based on your selection of daily activity. We also calcualte your BMI value and use it to figure out a weight control suggestion for you. A new daily calorie value based on that suggestion is also provided by the calculator. You can use that value as a simple guide for what you should take next.
The daily activity is divided into 6 levels. Refer to the table below for the weight applied to BMR for each level.
Calorie calculator calcualtor also calculate the BMR, BMI, your Fat mass and lean mass.
Daily calorie needed is calculated based on the BMR times a activity rate that is ranged from 1.2 to 1.9.
To calculate BMR, If you didn't input the body fat percent value, we used
Mifflin-St Jeor Formula: \[ For\ men: BMR = 10Weight + 6.25Height - 5Age + 5 \] \[ For\ women: BMR = 10Weight + 6.25Height - 5Age - 161 \] If you provided the body fat percent value that you can get it either use our body fat percentage calculator or from a device such as a fat percentage scale or caliper, then we will use
Katch-McArdle Formula: \[ BMR = 370 + 21.6(1 - BFP)Weight \]
The weight factor for each activity is in the following list:
This calculator is a good estimator for adult in normal weight (i.e BMI less than 25). The Energy Calculator is an alternate calculator for the same purpose that will take age group, gender and overweight into consideration and thus will be a better choice as a carolie calculator.
The calculated value show you the daily calorie needed to based on your activity level. We use the BMI value to figure out your BMI value is out of the health range and that information for us to come out with a suggestion for you to loss weight, gain weight or maintain your current weight. If your current activity level is below moderate exercise, we suggest you to increase your exercise level. The daily calorie needed will take that level increase into consideration.
