Weight Loss Calculator
In order to lose weight, you need your calorie intake to be less than your total daily calories burned. Using our weight loss calculator, you'll arrive at the calories you need to eat to reach your goal weight. Remember, there's a healthy range in which to achieve this loss. Restricting too much can be harmful to your health. The goal is to reach a weight loss of about 0.5-2 pounds per week so that your body has time to adjust and you're more likely to keep the weight off in the long term.
Need To Know How Many Calories Should You Intake?
Your daily calorie intake may vary depending on the amount of activity you do. If you're exercising more on one day, you may need to eat more to fuel that workout. As a rule of thumb, you never want to exceed a deficit (or eat less than) 1000 calories lower than the amount of calories you burn. The absolute minimum calorie intake should be 1200 for women and 1500 for men.
