Calorie Needs Per Day

Know Your Daily Calorie Needs

It’s critical to know your daily calorie needs, especially if you want to lose weight or maintain your current weight. To lose weight, you need to consume less calories than the calculator shows. If you want to maintain weight, you should eat about the same number of calories shown.

This calculator uses your resting metabolic rate (see our RMR Calculator) and factors in your normal (at work, home, school, play, exercise, etc.) activity level to give you the average number of calories you burn each day. If you use specific exercise routines, times, or classes you may like our Calories Burned Today Calculator. It allows you to enter your specific exercises and activities to more accurately calculate your actual calories burned for the day.
