How Many Calories Should I Eat a Day

How many calories should I eat a day? is a very important question for who wants to lose weight. If you know how many calories is needed to lose weight and maintain your weight then you can easily lose your weight. How you calculate your BMR means basal metabolic rate (BMR is closely related to the amount of energy expended daily by humans and other body). BMR calculator helps you to know how many calories your body need every day depending on your workout level.

BMR is different for both Men and Women. The following shows you how to calculate BMR:

BMR for Men (Metric)
66+(13.75*body weight)+(5*Height)-(6.8*Age)= BMR

Example BMR calculation for a man who weighs 170lbs (77kg), is 5'7" (170cm) and is 35 years old:
66 + (13.75*77) + (5*170) - (6.8*35) =
66 + (1058.75) + (850) - (238) = 1,737 Calories (BMR)

BMR for Women (Metric)
The variables used to calculate the RMR for women is different and is as follows:
655+(9.6*Weight)+(1.8*Height)-(4.7*Age)= BMR

Example BMR calculation for a woman who weighs 150lbs (68kg), is 5'5" (165cm) and is 35 years old:
655 + (9.6*68) + (1.8*165) - (4.7*35) =
655 + (652.8) + (297) - (164.5) = 1,440 Calories (BMR)
