These results may vary from person to person. To know how many calories one need daily just use the following formula: Men: BMR = 66 + (13.7 x W) + (5 x H) - (6.8 x Age) = Daily calories required Women: BMR = 665 + (9.6 x W) + (1.8 x H) - (4.7 x Age) = Daily calories needs Where: W = weight in Kg H = Height in cm (1 inch = 2.54 cm) Age = Years Multiply your BMR by an activity factor, which more closely suits your lifestyle: - Sedentary - none or very little exercise = BMR X 1.2 - Light activity for average of 2 days/week = BMR X 1.375 - Moderate activity level exercising 4 days/week = BMR X 1.5 - High activity levels exercise & sports more than 6 days/week = BMR X 1.7 - Higher activity levels = up to 2 x BMR Meaning that I would need: BMR = 665 + (9.6 x 63) + (1.8 x 174) - (4.7 x 17) = 1503.1kcal - Daily calories needed As I am a moderate activity level exercising person, I multiply my BMR by 1.5, which is equal to 2254.6kcal per day. This should be my perfect diet for a day. ...read more.
