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.

 

Instructions:
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.

Background

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.

Add a bit of shade, make the data stand out and use
an fascinating animation to change from slide to slip.

Just stop whining and get your ass moving and nutrition checked. I was 250lbs fat ass guy, instead of complaining I just tightened my butt and started move and eat cleaner and less. Now i am 170lbs at 32 and healthy as hell. Less talk little more action.

Quoting Jaclyn D Hall:
As a person with a BMI over 30,I find this extremely offensive.....implying that I underestimate my activity based on my weight? I learned at four years old how to tell time and have not lost that ability due to my weight. This is body shaming at its worst.

I think you misunderstood. They are not saying the time is underestimated, they are saying the amount burned in that time is underestimated because the formulas used are not accurate at the higher BMI levels
