The human body is the most complex organism there is and is composed by several other organisms. Both are in constant recycling movement of their cells. These cells are in constant recycling so that in one day millions of them are reproduced so that the older ones can be put away through personal necessities. In our organisms there are also several chemical reactions between carbohydrates, fats and etc. But for these chemical reactions to happen and these constant cells renovations there must be energy for it, the body needs a lot of energy, through oxygen and carbohydrates, matter to constitute the cells, through proteins and some additional substances, and again some other substances which facilitate the chemical reactions from the vitamins and minerals. And all of these essential things are found while our alimentation and respiration. ...read more.

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.
