Calorie Counter:

The calorie calculator first determines your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) using multiple factors including height, weight, age and sex. It then multiplies that value by an activity factor that takes into account your daily activities. This produces a value that represents your total daily calorie requirement for maintaining your weight. If you’ve selected either “Lose Weight” or “Build Muscle” as your goal, the calculator will add or subtract a scientifically determined amount of calories to or from the total.

Your basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the energy used (measured in calories) by your body to perform basic functions including internal energy expenditure, breathing and body temperature.

This calculator determines your BMR using multiple factors including height, weight, age and gender.

BMR is influenced by:

  • Age

Water Calculator

The human body requires a fresh supply of water every day. Not only is water one of the most abundant nutrients available, but it’s also the most important. Water helps regulate and maintain your body temperature, transports nutrients and oxygen, removes waste products, and moistens your mouth, eyes, nose, hair, skin, joints and digestive tract. Limiting your water intake can result in dehydration, elevated body temperature, fatigue, decreased performance as well as increasing the risk of heat-related illness. You should consume at least ten 12-ounce glasses of water per day.
