Use the Calorie Calculator to help determine recommended caloric intake.
The calorie calculator first determines your basal metabolic rate (BMR) using multiple factors, including height, weight, age and sex. It then multiplies that value by an activity factor that takes into account your daily activities. This produces a value that represents your total daily calorie requirement for maintaining your weight. If you've selected either "Lose Weight" or "Build Muscle" as your goal, the calculator will add or subtract a scientifically determined amount of calories to or from the total.
