A Quick 'n Easy Calorie Guide

Use this simple calorie calculator as a ball-park guide to calculate how many daily calories you need to maintain your present weight. Ball-park estimate only!

[Note: For an exact determination of your Basal Energy Expenditure Level/Basal Metabolic Rate and calorie needs, please use the Harris Benedict Formula]

Calories for Women

  • Work out your weight in pounds
    Example: Hilary is 150 pounds
  • Multiply your weight according to your lifestyle

    Sedentary
    : multiply by 12
    A very inactive Hilary needs 150 x 12 = 1800 calories

    Light Exercise
    : multiply by 13
    If Hilary takes light exercise she needs about 150 x 13 = 1950 calories

    Moderate Exercise: multiply by 14
    If Hilary takes moderate exercise she needs about 150 x 14 = 2100 calories

    Moderate-Heavy Exercise: multiply by 15
    If Hilary takes mod-heavy exercise she needs about 150 x 15 = 2250 calories

    Regular Heavy Exercise: multiply by 16
    If Hilary takes regular heavy exercise she needs about 150 x 16 = 2400 calories

Calories for Men

  • Work out your weight in pounds
    Example: Bill is 165 pounds
  • Multiply your weight according to your lifestyle

    Sedentary
    : multiply by 13
    A very inactive Bill needs 165 x 13 = 2145 calories

    Light Exercise
    : multiply by 14
    If Bill takes light exercise he needs about 165 x 14 = 2310 calories

    Moderate Exercise: multiply by 15.25
    If Bill takes moderate exercise he needs about 165 x 15.25 = 2516 calories

    Moderate-Heavy Exercise: multiply by 16.5
    If Bill takes moderate-heavy exercise he needs about 165 x 16.5 = 2722 calories

    Regular Heavy Exercise: multiply by 18
    If Bill takes regular heavy exercise he needs about 165 x 18 = 2970 calories
