Information about the Tool:

The Calorie Calculator utilizes the Harris-Benedict equation to estimate an individual’s Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), which represents the number of calories required to maintain basic bodily functions at rest. It then calculates Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE) by considering the individual’s activity level, providing an estimate of their total daily calorie needs.

    • TDEE represents the total number of calories an individual burns in a day, including physical activity and exercise, in addition to BMR.
  3. How Accurate are the Calculations?
    • While the equations used provide estimates based on established formulas, individual variation and other factors may influence actual calorie needs. These calculations serve as a guideline and may require adjustment based on personal experience and feedback.
  4. Should I Consult a Healthcare Professional?
    • It’s advisable to consult with a registered dietitian, nutritionist, or healthcare provider for personalized dietary recommendations, especially if you have specific health concerns or dietary restrictions.
