How Many Calories Should I Intake Daily?
The daily calorie calculator provides an estimate of calories you currently spend per day. You can see an explanation of the formulas here. One pound (453 grams) of body fat is equal to 3500 calories, so a daily calorie deficit of 500 calories should result in 1 pound of fat loss in one week. Do not try to immediately drop your calories to get weight lost more than 1 pound a week. Extreme fat loss diets can be suitable for very obese people and only after consulting a family doctor. Lowering your daily calorie intake less than 500 calories should be seen as an exception rather than a rule. The best way to lose weight faster is to add more daily exercise level.

Minimum Daily Calorie intake
When reducing calories: Do not lower your calorie intake more than 500 calories below normal body needs. Doing so may invoke the opposite response, which can lead to the yo-yo dieting effect. Try to gradually lower calories. A sudden drop in daily calorie intake (such as 500 calories or more) can cause your metabolism to slow.

This Daily Calorie Intake Calculator is a useful tool to lose weight and reduce body fat. To lose weight, 500 calories are subtracted per day for each pound (454 grams) you want to lose every week. To gain weight, 500 calories are added per day for each pound (454 grams) you want to gain every week. Total calorie levels less than 1200 calories are not recommended and weight loss of more than 2 pounds (908 grams) per week is also not recommended. For a more balanced approach to a 1 pound per week weight loss, increase your physical activity. You can decrease calorie intake by 250 calories per day and exercise to spend the other 250 calories. This approach prevents a decrease in your metabolic rate and promotes increased lean muscle mass.
