I'm 5'5 female. Currently 136.2 pounds. Trying to figure out my maintaince calories to determine my calorie deficency for the week but every calculator is different. One calculator says 2044 this one says 2581.

I don't know if I'm choosing right excercise/sport level. I work out 3 days a week mostly 40-60 mins. Would I be considered light or moderate ?

Hey Ashleigh - I'd say moderate. Best to use the calcs as a starting point and monitor for yourself. Choose a starting calorie number and check your weight/bodyfat weekly. If you're gaining weight when you're trying to lose, subtract 300 calories per week till you hit your sweet spot.

Iam 18, 5ft 9 and weigh around 150 pounds. It said I should intake 3333 calories and that seems like a lot but Iam extremely active doing calisthenics almost every day, but my normal intake is usually only 1200 calories.

Only 1200 kcal??? Seriously? Are you mad? You should eat at least double that!

Hey Kyle

Your caloric intake should be around 3000 calories/day (depending on your goals and how many days you're playing sports each week). Make sure you clicked "ft/lbs" when you entered your info, if you use the metric units and put in your standard ft/lbs it will be way off.

Hey Jodie

This tool is helpful to find a number to base your daily goals from. If your goal is to cut down then I'd suggest staying around 1900-2100 calories/day (depending on exercise schedule). Any diet will help you lose weight, as long as you remain in a caloric deficit. Here's a few options you can check out and choose which one fits you the best!

Your daily calorie requirement is how many calories you need to consume to maintain your weight. If you want to loss weight subtract 500 calories from that number. Losing weight and building muscle at the same time can be difficult which is why bodybuilders go through bulking and cutting phases. I suggest losing the excess body fat then focus on adding lean muscle mass. Diet should consist of lean meats, fruits and vegetables. Protein needs to be 1 gram per pound of body weight. Hope this helps.

I'm a 59 year old female and I am trying to lose weight. I've paid for programs and had free programs and they are all so different. Right now they want me eating 1000-1200 calories. My BMR is 1812 is sedentary and 2000 if lightly active. Please help me! How much should I eat if I want to lose weight?

My wife has been eating 1200 cal a day with great results. I would try that for 2 weeks and see how that goes. if you are still gaining weight, or not losing anything after 2 weeks, add a walk to your daily routine. I would not go below 1200 cal.

when you measure your weight, do it right after you get out of bed with no clothes on. You will fluctuate up and down throughout the day so it is important you are consistent when you weigh yourself. Because your weight fluctuates from day to day, do not be discouraged by the number if it is higher, treat the number as just a data-point for your overall health.

You should gradually reduce your calories from 300 to 250 every week

Id recommend increasing your activity level. I've found that cardio helps burn calories (obviously) but it also decreases my appetite.

The best thing should do is that you decrease your normal daily intake by 500 calories (if it's 2000 then you eat 1500) for 6 days and once a week eat your normal daily number od calories.

If u want to lose weight , u can either eat less than 1000 calories or do excersize .
For example , Im trying to lose weight too . My BMR is 2200 if I do excersize everyday , so if I eat 1000 calories in one day , I will have 1200 calories left for me wothout excersize . Remember 1 kg is equal to 7700 calories . I hope this helps

Eat 500 calories less than your BMR a day, and you'll lose a pound a week. (500 calories x 7 days a week = 3500 calories, which is how many calories equal one pound)

Without any detail about you 1500 calories per day is what i recommend

A 500 caloric deficit from your BMR will cause you to lose approx 1 lb a week. A rule of thumb is 3500 ≈ 1 lb of fat. The easiest way to lose is through consistent eating habits I wouldn’t go lower than consuming 1200 calories a day, but if you want to be in a greater deficit then you must burn calories. Good luck I hope this helped.

Try 1500 but weigh your foods and be really strict for a few weeks to really see what you are eating.

I 63 years young with the objective of losing some fat and building muscle that is both strong and powerful (I still work security in hotels).
If I increase the activity level to slightly active to very active 6-7 days per week the calculator increase my calorie requirement from 2,366 to 2968 respectively.
Could you advise what my calorie intake level should be? Understanding, that I am keen to lose fat.

So I've lost 110 lbs the hard way. With that, I'd like to add lean muscle but struggle with the fact I'd have to eat more than the 1500 calories I am consuming. It's hard to find how much I should eat vs. the amount of weight training I should be doing to lean out and improve muscle size. 56/5'-8"/ 230/ Football player build or Endomorph if you know what that is/2378 Cal per day? I have found that 16/8 intermittent fast really works well for me over a 7 or more day period. Any feedback is appreciated.

I recommend you don't try to set an exact calorie range. I also recommend you visit Greg Doucette's YouTube channel.

It happened to me the first time because I wrote it inches and lbs after my height and weight. But, since I had already at the very first question clicked on inches/lbs once I removed the words it calculated my bmr. Hope that helps. Good luck

At age 52, 5'1", 123 lbs and moderate activity, this calorie calculator says I should be consuming 1910 cal per day. I usually take in 1200 - 1500. I cut back to 1000 when i actively try to lose weight, only because I dont have time to spend more than an hour a day at the gym. Is my metabolism messed up? It is hard to cut back to 1000 cal. I find I dont have much energy. I have an intolerance to wheat and sugar, so I really dont eat bread or sweets. Also, I try to consume 50 - 75 g protein each day. Am I doing something wrong?

You should never try and eat at 1000 calories because your metabolism will crash and your body will go into starvation mode. Instead stick to the 1200-1500 limit and try to increase the activity you do outside of the gym. For example, try to walk at least 5000 steps a day. It doesn't have to be all at once, but if you have a desk job you can get up and walk around once in a while or even go out for a walk during your lunch break.

Hi Mary. It's more for what you're trying to achieve if youd like to build more then use the 1900 cal and base your macros in grams at 40% protein, 30% carb and 30% fat. However if you're looking to not build and rather get a little leaner do them at 40% protein and carbs then 20% fats. You should see good results from that.
