# Daily Calorie Requirements

Have you ever wondered just how many calories you really need each day? Well you’re in luck! This calculator will tell you the number of calories that your body burns per day – this is also called your “basal metabolic rate” or BMR. This is the number of calories that your body needs per day to maintain it’s current weight (the calories per day that will keep your weight right where it’s at!)

This tool will give you results based on a person of your sex, weight and age with an average activity level. If you are very active or rarely active, your body will use more or less calories per day. Since the calculator will give you a very good idea of the daily caloric intake per day that will maintain your current weight, you will in turn be able to determine a healthy number of calories that is slightly above or below your BMR. To lose weight the healthy way, you will want to consume slightly fewer calories than your BMR. To gain weight, you will want to consume slightly more. The tool can be extremely useful if you are trying to stick to a healthy fitness program. Healthy weight loss or weight gain takes place over time. Remember to be patient and consistent in your fitness goals. And most importantly, always remember to consult with a physician or professional trainer before beginning any weight loss, weight gain or general fitness program).

# Calorie Burning Calculator

Use the Calorie Burning Calculator to calculate your basal metabolic rate (BMR), which is the number of calories you burn on a daily basis. Note that this equation only gives a rough estimate. Depending on your activity level, you may require more or less calories.
