Calorie Intake Calculator

Introduction: The Calorie Intake Calculator is a tool designed to estimate the number of calories needed to maintain your current weight. It factors in variables such as weight, height, age, gender, and activity level.

Formula: The formula used to calculate estimated caloric intake is the Harris-Benedict equation: Estimated Caloric Intake=10×weight (kg)+6.25×height (cm)−5×age (years)+Activity MultiplierEstimated Caloric Intake=10×weight (kg)+6.25×height (cm)−5×age (years)+Activity Multiplier

How to Use:

  1. Enter your current weight in kilograms.
  2. Enter your height in centimeters.
  3. Enter your age in years.
  4. Select your gender.
  5. Select your activity level.
  6. Click the “Calculate” button.
  7. The result will display the estimated daily caloric intake.

Example: For a 30-year-old male, 75 kg, 175 cm tall, moderately active, the calculator will estimate the daily caloric intake.


  1. Q: What does “sedentary” activity level mean? A: Sedentary refers to little or no exercise or physical activity.
  2. Q: How often should I reassess my caloric needs? A: Reassess periodically, especially if there are significant changes in weight, activity, or other factors.
  3. Q: Can this calculator be used for weight loss? A: The calculator estimates maintenance calories. For weight loss, consider a caloric deficit from this estimate.

Conclusion: The Calorie Intake Calculator provides valuable insights into daily caloric needs. Use it as a guide for maintaining your weight and adjust accordingly based on your health and fitness goals. For personalized advice, consult with a healthcare professional or nutritionist.
