# If I Eat 1200 Calories A Day Calculator

Introduction

Formula

The calculator operates on a straightforward concept. It calculates your daily calorie balance by subtracting the calories you consume from the calories you burn. The formula can be explained as follows:

• Daily Calorie Goal: This is your target calorie intake for the day, which you set as 1200 calories in this case.
• Calories Burned: These are the estimated calories you burn through various activities and exercise.

The formula for calculating your daily calorie balance is as follows:

• Calories Remaining = Daily Calorie Goal – Calories Burned

How to Use

1. Input your daily calorie goal, which, in this case, is 1200 calories.
2. Enter any estimated calories burned through physical activity or exercise.
3. Click the “Calculate” button to determine your daily calorie balance.
4. Your result will be displayed in the input field, indicating whether you are in a surplus or deficit.

Example

Let’s say your daily calorie goal is 1200 calories, and you’ve burned 300 calories through exercise. Here’s how the calculation works:

• Daily Calorie Goal: 1200 calories
• Calories Burned: 300 calories
• Calories Remaining = 1200 – 300 = 900 calories

In this example, you have 900 calories remaining for the day, indicating that you are likely to be in a calorie deficit.
