Thumbs up Calculate your Calorie needs

Simple formula for calculating your energy needs or calorie needs. For calculating your energy need follow the simple formula: REE = 900 + 10w for men and REE = 700 + 7w.
REE is "Resting Energy Expenditure" and “w” is body weight.
If you are a 70 kilo man your REE is 900 + 700 (10x70) = 1600 calories.
If you are a 60 kilo woman your REE is 700 + 420 (7x60) = 1120 calories
If you lifestyle is sedentary multiply the REE with 1.2, if you are moderately active multiply REE with 1.4 and if very active multiply REE with 1.8 and find out your calorie needs for a day.
