Using the Daily Calorie Calculator
The fight with calories is an everyday affair and knowing your daily calorie intake is a critical part of managing it properly. Bad eating habits and almost non-existent physical activity make this fight a tough one. Calories are a way of measuring energy. Energy, if it is not used, is converted into fat and stored in the body. Excessive fat leads to obesity as well as a host of other medical complications. Obesity itself leads to various health problems including high blood pressure, heart attack, diabetes etc. Therefore, it is vital to ensure that only the required amount of calorie intake is taken daily. It is not easy to figure out how many calories are required for daily functioning. Most people are clueless as to how much is too much. What constitutes as the proper number of calories to lose weight? All these questions can be answered by using a calorie calculator.
What is a Calorie Intake Calculator?
Many men and women use calorie calculators to estimate the number of calories required to gain or lose weight. There are various calorie calculators that provide users with indications of required number of calories at various activity levels. For example, the nutrient calculator provides an estimate of the number of calories in carbohydrates, proteins, fats etc. The bulking calculator provides users with an estimate of the number of calories required to gain weight or muscle. Pregnant women use the pregnancy calorie calculator to assess their weight gain and calorie intake in order to ensure a healthy pregnancy. The breast feeding calorie calculator provides breast feeding mothers, the daily calorie intake, in order to nourish the baby while ensuring proper nourishment for themselves.
Losing Fat with the Calculator
One pound of fat equals 3,500 calories. This is an astonishing figure. Most experts suggest a calorie output of 500 daily in excess to what the body would expend in its normal condition, in order to ensure a weight loss of 1 lb a week. This figure sends many weight watchers to the gym to exercise away the required 500 calories. However, this is easier said than done. Most individuals find they do not lose weight, but remain constant, even with a daily calorie output of 500 or more. This is because weight loss becomes more and more difficult, the lighter an individual becomes. Weight loss is affected by many factors. For example, metabolism slows considerably after a certain age. This causes less burning of fat. This means an older person has to work harder and longer to burn 500 calories than it takes a much younger person. A 45 year old male, weighing 72 kilos with a height of 6 feet, exercising five days a week, must consume 1,922 calories a day. A 25 year old with the same height and weight and work out time can consume up to 2,039 calories while losing the same weight. The older people can ensure weight loss through a metabolism boost. Metabolism is boosted with cardio workouts, weight training, and occasional high-calorie meals. The calorie calculator helps identify the right number of calories required to lose weight in the proper manner.
Reducing Calories the Proper Way
There is a minimum calorie intake level persons must adhere to in order to lose weight in a healthy manner. Women require a minimum daily calorie intake of 1200 while men require a daily calorie intake of 1800. Lowering calorie intake to less than these amounts triggers the starvation response. This means the body adapts to the lack of calories and conserves energy. This, as a result, slows metabolism further, aggravating the weight gain tendencies. Low calorie intake causes muscle mass breakdown, nutritional deficiencies, fatigue and sluggishness. This therefore, is not the right way to lose weight. A gradual calorie intake reduction helps lose weight in the proper manner.
Losing weight is never easy. Most often, although the scale informs loss of weight, a body mass calculator states increased fat percentage. This happens when the weight loss does not take place in the proper manner, which results in muscle depletion. This makes it more difficult to lose weight, but makes it easier to gain weight as well. Referring to the calorie calculator enables a person to obtain an approximation of the daily calorie intake in order to lose weight in a healthy and permanent way.
