Total energy expenditure

Calculate your daily calorie consumptionThis is a very precise metabolic calculator. It calculates your resting metabolic rate and your total energy consumption in calories or kilojoules. This can be a helpful tool for weight loss as it allows you to estimate the amount of calories that represents your energy balance.

2. The calculator assumes that all unaccounted time is spend sitting.

Estimate energy expenditureIf you want to increase accuracy of your estimation, you should print this sheet and fill it out hour by hour on a typical day. After that - enter values in to the calculator.




The basal metabolic rate is calculated from the Schofield reference formulas used by WHO including age specific formulas for children. Energy cost of activities are based on various references and because children use relative more energy pr. kg body weight than adults, a dynamic correction is used for children depending on body weight.

At the other end of the scale, obese people tend to have their activity dependent energy expenditure overestimated. Accordingly, a correction factor for body mass indexes over 30 is applied.

In summary: this calculator is reliable for children as well as normal weight and obese adults.

I am sorry, but i think this calculator is w bit off. Im 34, 179cm, and 77kg..This thing says i burn 3,655 calories on days when I work out. Is this calculator used for days Im not working out or for my days I am working out? Even on non workout days it says I burn 2,734 calories. Does this mean on my workout days I need to eat more than I burn on that day? Or do I just need to eat more than I burn on a normal day?

I have a question, is the amount of energy the brain uses everyday also included in the calculations of this calculator? A normal brain can use about 300-400 calories a day!

Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you
know a few of the pictures aren't loading correctly.
I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
I've tried it in two different browsers and both show the same results.

May I just say what a comfort to find somebody that genuinely knows what they are talking
about over the internet. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light
and make it important. More people should look at this and understand this side of the story.
It's surprising you aren't more popular since you
most certainly possess the gift.
