How does the calorie intake calculator work?

The calorie intake calculator was developed by MealPro and uses the BMR and Harris Benedict Equation to give you your ideal daily calorie intake to achieve your weight loss goals. Basal Metabolic Rate and the Harris Benedict Equation combine to give you the most scientific approach and the closest possible accurate calorie intake that can be given in a blog post (This weight loss calculation is probably a more reliable weight loss tool than what most dietitians give you).

Calorie Intake Calculator Summary

The BMR calculator will calculate the number of calories your body burns while resting. We then apply an activity factor called the Harris Benedict Equation to tell you what your total daily calorie expenditure is. Once you understand your total daily calorie need a calorie deficit to achieve your weigh loss goals. If 3000 calories equal one pound of body weight you can now find your daily calorie need to achieve your weight goals. The daily calorie calculator above does exactly that. For optimal health reasons please remember to eat healthy foods and to combine a healthy weight loss diet with regular fat burning exercise for optimal weight loss goals.
