So I've lost 110 lbs the hard way. With that, I'd like to add lean muscle but struggle with the fact I'd have to eat more than the 1500 calories I am consuming. It's hard to find how much I should eat vs. the amount of weight training I should be doing to lean out and improve muscle size. 56/5'-8"/ 230/ Football player build or Endomorph if you know what that is/2378 Cal per day? I have found that 16/8 intermittent fast really works well for me over a 7 or more day period. Any feedback is appreciated.

It happened to me the first time because I wrote it inches and lbs after my height and weight. But, since I had already at the very first question clicked on inches/lbs once I removed the words it calculated my bmr. Hope that helps. Good luck

At age 52, 5'1", 123 lbs and moderate activity, this calorie calculator says I should be consuming 1910 cal per day. I usually take in 1200 - 1500. I cut back to 1000 when i actively try to lose weight, only because I dont have time to spend more than an hour a day at the gym. Is my metabolism messed up? It is hard to cut back to 1000 cal. I find I dont have much energy. I have an intolerance to wheat and sugar, so I really dont eat bread or sweets. Also, I try to consume 50 - 75 g protein each day. Am I doing something wrong?

You should never try and eat at 1000 calories because your metabolism will crash and your body will go into starvation mode. Instead stick to the 1200-1500 limit and try to increase the activity you do outside of the gym. For example, try to walk at least 5000 steps a day. It doesn't have to be all at once, but if you have a desk job you can get up and walk around once in a while or even go out for a walk during your lunch break.

Hi Mary. It's more for what you're trying to achieve if youd like to build more then use the 1900 cal and base your macros in grams at 40% protein, 30% carb and 30% fat. However if you're looking to not build and rather get a little leaner do them at 40% protein and carbs then 20% fats. You should see good results from that.

Best BMR calculator i've found online. At 5.5, 140 lbs and light activity, other calculators had me consuming 1500 cals per day to lose 1lb per week. After a month of not losing anything substantial I came here and found out that is around my maintenance level and that's why the scale hadn't been moving. Dropped calories to 1300 per day and finally losing weight.

You can consume 4686 calories a day and lose weight, it just depends on what foods make up those calories, so the website is by no means trying to make you fat, but it presumes that you can control what food goes into your body.

Swimmers....soccer players.....dancers..... Any competitive sport. Please have an open mind if you plan to have results. It's not 4000 calories from big Macs so calm down, educate yourself, and follow/trust the process. There is no such thing as a fast track.

If you ate 4000 calories you are going to gain weight regardless of what is in it, that is not a caloric deficit for anyone

It didn’t work for me. All fields were filled in and I even changed out 5’7” to total inches. I put 125 lbs and then took out lbs and it still stated “please fill in all fields”. Suggestions?

You need to put your height in inches only, so for you it would be (5 x 12) + 7 = 67 inches. Also only put numbers in the fields, not letter like "lbs"

It worked for me. The only thing I changed was instead of putting down 5’7 as my height , I only wrote down 57 . I’m not sure if that works for everyone but it’s near to my TDEE using a different calculation
Hope this helps

I filled in every section and received absolutely nothing to tell me about my calorie intake or my metabolic rate. Please get this right as I see that I am not the only one who was disappointed.

Must do better.

Actually the calculation is fairly spot on. My calorie consumption reads just under 3200. When I have previously set a daily target of 2800 , I managed to loose about half a pound a week. Does not sound much, but starting in February I found that I had shed about 10 pounds come mid June. Not a huge amount but I was only 14 stone to start with and I found that I had cut down to a healthy look. Didn’t feel hungry and it disciplined me to eat properly so I didn’t use up my allowance on ‘empty ‘ calories. Ultimately this works as long as you are honest with how you rate your activity.

Works fine for me too. Compared to the Naval Biometrics Test I just had done, it's a little under 100kcal difference. That's totally acceptable x

It usually mean I filled something in wrong. Ex: when I accidentally fill out my height as 6’3, instead of 75

Change your keyboard language to English. The numbers must be Like this "123". This problem occurs when I write the numbers in Arabic like this ١٢٣.

Enter your height in inches if using US in example if you are 6 feet 2 inches tall enter 74 for the number that should be your problem

You have to take your number and add about 500 calories to it.
Hit the gym and increase your protein intake such as meats eggs fish and chicken

5’6”, 220lb male. BMR given is 2801. Picked the lowest amount of exercise listed. Jogging 3-4 days a week, Muay Thai 1 or 2, lifting 1-2. Most workouts are about 45 minutes each across the board. A different app gave me a goal of 1850 cal/day to lose weight, hasn’t been working. Am I having issues dropping weight because I’m eating too little?

Weight loss is not always a straight downward path. Sometimes, it halts, other times you gain a little, and loose back next week.
In my case I have managed to shave off a lot of extra weight by doing intermittent fasting and eating mostly healthy meals, no fast food, no juices, no deep fried foods and less processed sugar & meats. I do allow myself 1 day / week to cheat-eat a little unhealthy and higher calorie mean (but I don’t go overboard). In my opinion Cheat days are important because you don’t stress your body with low calories everyday and your metabolism will stay “sharp”.
Try counting your calories, but I would say 2800 kal / day is a lot. Try to figure out how many calories you burn daily without workouts and substract 500 (to loose weight). In my experience, loosing weight is food, not exercising. Exercise helps you, but really 90% is the food we eat.

You mean kilocalories, right? With 4 kcal a day, I'd die of hunger.
