Calorie Calculator For Weight Loss

The calorie calculator for weight loss works takes your input and calculates your calories per day. Once you have your calories per day the weight loss calories calculator gives you a daily calorie deficit so you consume more calories than you burn. 3000 calories are the equivalent of one pound of body weight. By having a daily calorie deficit of 500 calories you can have a 3000 total calorie deficit over a one-week period, a calorie intake equivalent to losing one pound of body weight per week. For optimal health reasons and to prevent your body from going in a catabolic state the food calorie deficit should not exceed 500 per day. In order to successfully lose weight you need optimal nutrition while keeping your body metabolism active.
