How many calories do you need daily?

This calorie calculator will calculate how many calories you need daily to maintain, lose or gain weight. It can also calculate your BMR (basal metabolic rate). Subtract 500 to 1000 calories to that number for an healthy weight loss and not to go under 1200 calories daily for women and 1800 for men if you don't want to slow down your metabolism and start losing muscles. You don't want to be skinny fat! (Increasing proteins can reduce muscle loss)


The Basal Metabolic Rate was calculated accord to The Original Harris-Benedict Equation.

How counting calories works


The calories needed to maintain your weight equal to the BMR value were multiplied by an activity factor. To lose 1 pound, or 0.5kg per week, you will need to shave 500 calories from your daily menu.
