Simply calculate calorie requirements - Calculate Now
With the practical calorie calculator now calculate the individual calorie requirement with just a few clicks.
Are you looking for your individual calorie requirement, on the basis of which you would like to determine your daily calorie intake for e.g. a diet?
With the free calorie calculator tool from Calc2Web you can now calculate your very personal calorie requirement by entering a few pieces of information.
Based on various information such as your individual body weight, your gender as well as your age, your activity factor as well as on the basis of other reference points, the free tool calculates your individual calorie requirement completely independently in the background.
In the following sections, we would like to introduce you to our popular calorie calculator tool in more detail.
This is how the calculation of the calorie requirement with our calorie counter tool works
The following selection fields must first be filled out by you as the basis for the calculation:
- Gender (male or female)
- Body height (in centimeters)
- Body weight (in kilograms)
- Age (in years)
- Activity factor (selectable from less active to extremely active)
Once all the above information has been entered into Calc2Web 's advantageous calorie calculator, all that remains to be done to calculate the individual calorie requirement is to click on the final CALCULATE button at the bottom of the calorie calculator.
Calculation of the individual calorie requirement types and how to interpret them
The calorie calculator calcul ates the following four types of demand based on the data entered:
- Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)
- Basal metabolic rate (RMR)
- Calorie requirement (BMR)
- Calorie requirement (RMR)
The four types of requirements are given by the calorie calculator in the unit kilocalories per day (or kcal/day).
Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the calorie requirement at rest (i.e. in the absence of any activity and maintenance of vital body functions), based on the Harris-Benedict formula.
Basal metabolic rate (RMR) is also the calorie requirement in absolute resting mode, but here based on the so-called Mifflin formula.
Depending on the activity, the free calorie calculator tool from Calc2Web also calculates the respective calorie requirement - if this is not reached, weight loss occurs, and if it is exceeded, weight gain occurs.
Again, the tool calculates the two different types of requirements based on the Harris-Benedict formula, or the Mifflin formula and gives the corresponding result in both cases in kilocalories per day (kcal/day).
In addition to the actual calorie requirement, the necessary nutrient distribution of the food consumed should also be taken into account - here, too, corresponding guideline values apply with regard to the distribution of calories among the three macronutrients proteins, carbohydrates and fats.
