Calories Per Day Calculator

How many calories does my body burn per day?

This basic calorie calculator is designed to give adults a rough idea of thier basal metabolic rate - the number of calories per day that your body burns to maintain your weight. Basically, this is the number of calories it takes just being you for a day, before you add exercise etc.


How to lose weight by counting calories

One pound of fat is equal to about 3,500 calories. So, use the ScaleWars calorie calculator to figure out how many calories you burn per day and then try to eat 500 calories less than that. 500 calories x 7 days = one pound per week lost. If you get crazy and add in some exercise then you could easily double or triple your weight loss per week!

Health Note: You really should not eat less than 1,200 calories per day without medical supervision. It's easy to hurt yourself with wreckless diets. If you plan to count calories and eat below or even close to 1200 calories per day, make sure to consult your doctor and get thier opinion on your diet plans.
