Daily Calorie Requirements


A calorie can be defined as a unit of energy supplied by food. Whether you're eating carbohydrates, fats, sugars, or proteins, Calories are everywhere. The total number of calories you consume and burn in 24 hours is what determines your weight. So keep an eye on those calories you’re packing in everyday, because they count!

Your body’s calorie requirement depends on your:
  • Age
  • Height
  • Weight
  • Gender
  • Body Size
  • Level of Physical Activity
  • Certain Conditions such as Pregnancy
It’s but common knowledge that people who are physically more active burn more calories than those who maintain a sedentary lifestyle.

Remember one simple thing :

When calories consumed = calories burnt, your weight stays constant
When calories consumed > calories burnt, you gain weight
When calories consumed < calories burnt, you lose weight

A balanced calorie intake over time helps you maintain healthy weight.

Follow a few simple rules. Cut down on those extra slices of pizza, control your daily portions of food, and you’ll be able to regulate your weight just fine!
