Calories Per Day Calculator
How many calories per day your body burns
This adult daily calories calculator gives an approximation of your basal metabolic rate - the number of calories per day your body burns, and therefore the number of calories you could eat per day to maintain your current weight.
If your goal is to lose weight by burning off excess body fat, aim to eat 500 fewer calories per day than your daily caloric needs, and maintain or increase your exercise activity.
Do not go below 1200 calories per day unless you are on a medically supervised weight loss program or after consultation with your doctor.
