How Many Calories to Intake Daily?

The calculator provides an estimate of calories you are currently spending a day. One pound (453 grams) of body fat is equal to 3500 calories, so daily calorie deficit of 500 calories should result in 1 pound body fat loss in one week. Do not attempt to decrease your calories too fast to get weight lost more than 1 pound (453 grams) in one week. High rate fat loss can be suitable for very obese people after consulting a family doctor or a professional diet specialist. Lowering your calorie intake less than 500 daily should be an exception rather than a recommended rule. Increase your daily exercise level to lose weight faster.


Minimum Daily Calorie intake

When reducing calories: Do not lower your calorie intake by more than 500 calories below your daily body needs. Doing so may cause an opposite response, which can lead to the yo-yo diet effect. Lower your daily calories gradually, not fast. A sudden drop in daily calorie intake (less than 500 calories) can cause your metabolism to slow.

Calculate your recommended daily calorie intake to lose weight, maintain or gain your weight. To lose your weight, 500 calories are subtracted per day for each pound (454 grams) you plan to lose every week. To gain weight, 500 calories are added per day for each pound (454 grams) you want to gain every week. Total caloric levels less than 1200 calories and weight loss of more than 2 pounds (908 grams) per week are not recommended. For more balanced approach to a 1 pound per week weight loss, increase your physical activity (exercise more). We can recommend to decrease calorie intake by 250 calories per day and exercise more to spend the other 250 calories. This approach prevents a possible decrease in your metabolic rate and promotes increased lean muscle mass.
