There are so many factors affecting energy consumption needs that estimating the necessary calorie intake in mind would be too complicated.
You end up wasting half of your day doing lots of math with your calories, weight and height and comparing target body mass to your current weight.
Science behind our calorie calculator
BMR, or basal metabolic rate is one of the most widely used parameters for finding out the preferred calorie ratio.
For our calculator, we use the Mifflin – St. Jeor formula.
It identifies BMR by analyzing the essential features of your organism: body mass, height, age and biological gender.
Each of those numbers is multiplied by a special index, and, as a result, the daily calorie consumption rate is calculated.
