How Many Calories Does A Man Or Woman Need To Eat In A Day?
How many calories does a man or woman need to eat in a day to maintain the same body weight based upon average physical exertion?
Most dieticians will recommend between 1500 and 2000. Yet it also depends on the activity level of the person. I don't have links to the websites, but there are some which tell you how many calories you burn for specific activities. To maintain a body weight, you have to burn as many calories as you ingest.
It depends on your height, weight, age and also your activities as well. I recommend the app MyFitnessPal which allows you to plug in a few pieces of data and calculate your calories per day. It's a great tool and also helps you monitor your calorie intake each day and helps you establish your goal weight and calories needed.
It depends upon the gender. If you have a special type of calculator you can work it out. Otherwise, here are the general guidelines. Bear in mind that less than 1500 calories a day may slow down your metabolism and put a serious strain on your nutritional requirements.
I wrote a hub about this and it really does depend on the person, their weight, their lifestyle and how and what they eat. The recommendations of around 2000 calories per day are just a guide. Eating healthy and staying healthy are a lifestyle choice so each woman and man will need different calories per day.
It definitely depends on the individual on how many calories a man or woman needs to maintain body weight. Stats such as gender, age, weight, height, medical issues, and activity level are all very important. For someone who is extremely active, an easy formula to use to figure calories would be multiplying weight by 16-22. If you want to count calories, you will have to play with these figures a bit to gauge what works best for you. As a nutritionist, I know how difficult it is for most to count calories. A good rule of thumb is to include a protein that is approximately the size of your palm for every single meal/snack. Include a vegetable and an essential fat at every single meal (skip the fat after your workout though), and include starchy carbs before and after your workout. Eat until you are 80 percent full.
