There are 2 parts for getting estimates on how much calories you burn a day.
1. How much calories you burn at rest (Resting Energy Expenditure)
2. How much calories you burn during exercise.
In order to find out how much calories you burn at rest you need to convert your weight in pounds into kilograms.
From there you need to find the appropriate age group for yourself and calculate your REE by inserting your weight (kg) into the equation.
Choose your activity level from the table below.
Once you’ve figured out your activity level look at the chart below to find your “Activity Factor”.
Now that you have your Activity Factor multiply it by your REE (from table 1)
You should now have an estimate of how many calories you burn a day.
Post your results below and lets see what you got!
