Why maintenance calories?
To find your maintenance calories is a very important first step towards your fitness goals. If you don’t know what you’re maintenance calories are whilst you are carrying out your regular routine of work and exercise, it can be difficult to know if your diet is the limiting factor to breaking through platous and if you’re having enough of the right food to fuel your body. If work and execrise have a routine, so should your diet!
How many calories should I have a day?
Everyone here is different. We have different jobs, bodies, lifestyle and goals. There are studies showing averages for age, height, weight and sex. This is why using this calculator for how many calories you need to maintain the weight you’re currently holding will show you the right amount of calories for you and only you.
Isn’t it eat more to gain and eat less to lose?
Not necessarily, some times eating more can actually cause you to lose weight due to switching to a healthier diet and cutting out proccessed foods which may have more calories in them at times but they also contain chemical compounds which are harmful to our health.
