Functions as a BMR calculator.
Based on the accurate Mifflin-St Jeor equation, it gives you your current average daily caloric consumption. In other words, the number you get is how many Calories you should eat per day in order to burn fat or to build muscle.
This calculator takes into account your unique goal, sex, age, height, weight, and activity level. As your weight changes, your daily caloric intake number will change too.
Use this calculator again when your weight or activity level changes.
A typical day of exercise is one of the following:
- at least 20 minutes of vigorous intensity (e.g. weight training, sprints)
- 30 minutes of moderate to vigorous intensity (e.g. calisthenics, sports), or
- 60 minutes of low to moderate intensity (e.g. jogging, treadmill).
Most people who exercise fall in the 3–5 day moderate exercise range.
