How many calories should you eat per day?

How many calories do you need to consume a day? This depends not only on your weight and height, but also – equally importantly – on how active you are. Someone who spends a lot of time sitting down will need fewer calories than someone who is active throughout the day.

Calculate how many calories you need to consume a day below. Two results will be displayed: the daily calorie intake shows how many calories are required to maintain your current weight, while you need at least the minimum number in order for your body to function properly. If you would like to lose weight, you should consume a number of calories between these two results.
