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.


1. Use the dials until you have entered time spend on sleeping and other activities on a typical day (24 hours).
2. The calculator assumes that all unaccounted time is spend sitting.

(Remaining time)


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.

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.

Thank you so much for this very useful tool! It has healed my relationship with food. I had no idea that my body burned this many calories! It is awesome to know I can eat satisfying amounts of food and lose/maintain weight. No need to slash calories to proverbial 1200!

The height doesn't work, it doesn't affect the daily total. That can't be right.
