What are calories?

A calorie is a measure of energy, just as a kilogram is a measure of weight and a kilometer is a measure of distance. So the amount of energy you exert in doing an activity is measured by the calorie burn rate.

How to burn calories?

Your body is constantly burning calories to keep your body functioning. To burn more calories, do more activities, and the more strenuous the activity the greater the calorie burn. Your daily calorie intake may vary depending on the amount of activity you do. If you’re exercising more on one day, you may need to eat more to fuel that workout. The absolute minimum calorie intake should be 1200 for women and 1500 for men. In order to lose weight, you need your calorie intake to be less than your total daily calories burned. Restricting calorie intake too much can be harmful to your health.

How calorie intake is related to BMR?

This Calorie Calculator is based on the Mifflin – St Jeor equation. With this equation, the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is calculated by using the following formula:
BMR = 10 * weight(kg) + 6.25 * height(cm) – 5 * age(y) + 5         (man)
BMR = 10 * weight(kg) + 6.25 * height(cm) – 5 * age(y) – 161     (woman)
The calories needed to maintain your weight equal to the BMR value, multiplied by an activity factor. To lose 1 pound, or 0.5kg per week, you will need to cut 500 calories from your daily menu.
The best way to lose weight is through proper diet and exercise. Try not to lower your calorie intake by more than 1,000 calories per day, and try to lower your calorie intake gradually. Also, try to maintain your level of fiber intake and balance your other nutritional needs.
The results of the Calorie Calculator are based on an estimated average.
