 how many calories you need a day to lose weight
 Calories are associated with food and weight for most people, but many of them can not accurately answer the question, what is a calorie and kilocalorie and how many calories you need a day to lose weight.

Calorie - a unit of measure which actually refers not to the weight and to energy. More specifically, a calorie is the amount of energy or heat required to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water by one degree Celsius. One calorie is equal to 4.184 joules. Thus, the caloric content of the product simply indicates the amount of energy that is produced after the consumption of food or beverage. A kilocalorie - is simply one thousand calories. Speaking of caloric, we often use the term calories instead of "kilocalorie." Thus, in the vernacular phrase "In this five hundred calorie chocolates" actually typically means that it 500.000 calories, or 500 kcal.


How many calories we need in life?

No matter how active or sedentary life leads people calories needed to sustain life. What is the number of calories a person needs to consume on a daily basis, depending on the level of physical activity, as well as the ratio of muscle and fat tissue in the body.

General recommendations are as follows: daily calories for women is 2,000 calories for men - 2500 kcal.

To lose weight, you need to spend more calories than you consume; for it is usually recommended to not only limit your diet and begin to exercise more.


Calories per day to lose weight

Calculate daily requirement of calories for weight loss is quite simple - it is done in three steps. First of all, you need to define the basic metabolism Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting  Improves metabolism and losing weight without dieting
   - The number of calories that the body needs in order to maintain vital functions while at rest. For this purpose most often uses the following formula:

Option 1

  • For women: 655.1 + (9.563 * weight (kg)) + (1.85 * Height (cm)) - (4.676 * age)
  • Men: 66.5 + (13.75 * Weight (kg)) + (5.003 * height (cm)) - (6.775 * age)

Option 2

  • Women: 9, 99 * Weight (kg) + 6.25 * height (cm) - 4 * age 92 - 161
  • Men (9, 99 * weight) + (6.25 * height) - (4, 92 * age) +5

The second formula is now considered more accurate.

Thus, the thirty-year woman, weighing 60 kg and height - 165 cm, the base or basic metabolism Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things  Metabolism: The basis of life of all living things
   (ERD) is about 1290 kcal.

Next calories are calculated based on the level of physical activity:

  • Sedentary lifestyle: a man spends much time in front of the TV or at the computer, physical activity is minimal - CWA multiplied by 1.4;
  • Light physical activity: sedentary work, and about an hour of moderately intensive exercise per day. BOV * 1.5;
  • Moderate physical activity: light physical work and more active in their leisure time or sedentary work and intensive training, as well as leisure. BOV * 1.6;
  • High physical activity: heavy physical labor or professional sport. BOV * 1.9.

Assessing the level of their physical activity, and performing calculations, you will know how many calories you need per day to maintain your current weight. To lose weight, you must consume fewer calories. How it less, you will learn in the next step.

Unfortunately, there is no simple and clear formulas. To determine the optimal caloric intake for weight loss, it is necessary to take into account the following factors:

  • Type of physical activity

For the same power and duration of interval training allows to burn more calories than aerobic exercise.

  • Type diet

For processing the proteins the body spends more total energy, respectively, people in the diet that many proteins per day burned more calories than those who eat more carbohydrates or fats.

  • Number of extra kilos

If you need to lose more than eleven kilograms, probably your ERD is calculated according to the above formula is not true - it is too high. The fact that these formulas are established for determining basal metabolism, excluding the amount of fat in the body. This is their major disadvantage because the demand for energy in adipose tissue is much lower than that of muscles, bones, and internal organs. In the above formulas Thirty female Height 165 cm and weight 80 kg, performing sedentary work requires 2282 calories a day. However, as the percentage of fat in her body probably exceeds the norm (we do not take into account rare, especially in women, when a large body mass is achieved through muscle building), its actual daily rate of calories is about 2000 kcal.
