Following my previous post and excel tool to calculate BMR, this is a calorie intake calculator that will calculate how many calories you need when you do several activities, from light activities until heavy activities. For example, if you are an athlete, you will need more calorie to keep you in good shape condition.
To use this calorie intake calculator, you can follow steps below :
- Type your name in name box
- Type your age in age box
- Select your gender (female/male) in gender box
- Type your height (in cms)
- Type your weight (in kgs)
Those 5 information above will be used to produce your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) number. Select your weekly activity category from 5 available categories. Those categories are : sedentary (little/no exercise), lightly active (sports 1-3 days/week), moderately active (sports 3-5 days/week), very active (almost exercise every day), and extra active (usually athletes). You will get your calorie needs number after you select one of it.
You can use this calculation as your side reference, although the numbers used in calculation are came from statistic measurement. If you are looking for what kind of food and drink that can meet your calculated calorie number, you can use other tool to calculate it, or you can find food and drink calorie table which you can find in many internet sites or you can ask your health consultant as well.
