Daily energy requirements calculator

Nutrition , Healthy eating, Adolescent, Senior Primary, Healthy weight, Activity - Updated

Calculate how much energy you should eat each day - and see the effect if you exercise more or if you are trying to lose weight.

Energy requirements vary with age, gender, body size and activity levels. The Energy Requirements Calculator estimates your daily energy requirements for good health based on what your body needs for breathing, circulating blood, digesting food and physical activity. This may change from day to day. Any energy intake above the estimated requirement is likely to result in weight gain.
