Calorie Intake Calculator,
BMR Calculator

Use our calorie intake calculator and BMR calculator to calculate both your BMR and your daily calorie needs so as to maintain your weight according to your daily activity levels. So, what is BMR? It stands for the Basal Metabolic Rate and measures the minimum amount of energy you need when resting. The BMR calculation was devised by doctors at the University of Nevada Medical School and published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition in 1990, they used the Harris-Benedict Equation to determine your estimated daily caloric burn off.

When calculating your BMR remember:

  • If you have a desk job and your activity level is limited to walking from your home to the car and from the car to your office, etc. – boost your BMR up by 20%.
  • If your lifestyle is very active, it can nearly double your calorie needs.
  • If your target is to lose weight, your daily calorie intake should be reduced. One pound of body fat contains 3500 calories. If you have a daily allowance of 2500 calories, but reduce your intake to 2000, you can achieve a weight loss of 1lb per week. Have a look at how to calculate your recommended daily calorie intake to lose weight.
