Calorie Burning Meal Calculator

This calculator shows you how many calories should you eat every day to burn your extra weight

You burn calories to provide energy for three main functions:

1. Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)

This is the amount of calories you burn just by being alive – even when you are lying down, doing nothing. BMR accounts for approximately 60% of the calories burned for an average person.

2. Burning Calories for Activity

This is the energy used during movement – from lifting your arm to operate the remote control to cleaning the windows. This accounts for approximately 30% of the calories burned by an average person.

3. Dietary Thermogenesis

The ‘thermogenic effect’ described as meal-induced heat production – the calories burned in the process of eating, digesting, absorbing and using food.

Best exercises for burning calories:

  1. Running (8mph) - 861-1,074 per hour depending on your weight
  2. Skipping - 861-1,074
