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 loss 1 pound, or 0.5kg per week, you will need to shave 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.

How Many Calories Do You Need?
Nearly all of us seek to lose weight, and often the best way to do this is to consume a lower amount of calories each day than we usually do. But how many calories do we need to be healthy? Much depends, of course, on the amount of physical activity you engage in each day. And it's different for us all; there are a lot of different factors involved.
Factors include age, size, height, sex, lifestyle, and overall general health. A physically active, 25 –year-old six foot male requires considerably more calories than a 5 foot 70-year-old woman who is not especially active. The average male adult requires about 2, 700 calories to maintain his weight, while the average female needs only 2, 200 calories, according to the U.S Department of Health.
