Calorie Intake Calculator
Daily Calorie Intake
This Calorie Calculator is based on the Harris-Benedict principle which calculates an adult person’s basal metabolic rate, also known as “BMR”. BMR is the amount of energy the body needs to function. Input your age, gender, height, weight, and activeness to determine the recommended daily allowance of calories. Enter another weight to determine the BMR for that weight. It is recommended that a person lose no more than 2 pounds a week because losing more will likely mean the weight will return. Cutting back 1000 calories a day should result in losing 2 pounds a week. It is better to cut back on calories and burn off calories through exercise to eliminate the desired calories. A person should never cut back to fewer than 1,200 daily calories without medical supervision.
