Calories Calculation

Calories

The Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)=

10 * weight (kg) + 6.25 * height(cm) - 5 * age(y) + 5 for (man)

10 * weight(kg) + 6.25 * height(cm) - 5 * age(y) - 161 for ​(woman)

To determin​e your total daily calorie needs, multiply your BMR by the appropriate activity factor, as follows:

  • If you are sedentary (little or no exercise) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.2
  • If you are lightly active (light exercise/sports 1-3 days​/week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.375
  • If you are moderately active (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.55
  • If you are very active (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days a week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.725
  • If you are extra active (very hard exercise/sports & physical job or 2x training) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.9

For example If you are sedentary, and your BMR equal 1745 so the total number of calories you need in order to maintain your current weight = 1745*1.2 = 2094.
