Food Calorie Calculator

Food Calorie Calculator

A Food Calorie Calculator

Calories are the fuel we need for energy. Unfortunately, if we eat too many, the body converts calories to energy and stores fat. If you are an active person training to gain size or muscle, if you eat too few calories you will not make gains. A food calorie calculator makes sure you get the right amount of calories to build muscle or burn fat.

Why is using the food calorie calculator important?

Would it be useful to have a calculator that tells you how many calories to eat each day to gain or lose weight? Try our health and fitness calculators! All you need to do is add a few details and the calculator will provide the number of calories you need daily to burn fat or gain muscle.

How to use the food calorie calculator.

To use the food calorie calculator, you will need to input your age, gender, weight in pounds, your height in inches. You will also need to identify and choose your activity level:

  • Sedentary – Little to no exercise and/or a desk job.
  • Lightly Active – Light exercise 1-3 days/week.
  • Moderately Active – Moderate exercise 3-5 days/week.
  • Very Active – Heavy exercise 6-7 days/week.
  • Extremely Active – Very heavy exercise, hard labor, training twice per day.

As an example, a 30-year-old male, 70 inches tall who weighs 200 pounds and is sedentary, would need to eat 1799 calories to create a calorie deficit creating weight loss. That same man would need to consume 2449 calories to create a calorie surplus and gain weight. If he changed only his activity level to “Moderately Active” he could consume 2324 calories and still lose weight and would need to eat 3104 calories to gain weight.

Using your food calorie calculator results.

Calories are your body’s fuel and it is important for you to be consuming enough of them to make it through your day (and your workouts). Providing the correct number of calories can be tricky though, too many will cause weight gain, too few will prevent weight (and muscle) gain. The food calorie calculator can help make your life easier by providing the numbers you need to reach your diet and fitness goals safely and more quickly.
