Effectively losing weight is simply a combination of two things: science and maths. If your body burns more calories as energy than you eat, you'll lose weight. If you eat more calories than your body burns as energy, you'll gain weight. If you eat exactly the same amount of calories as your body burns in energy, your weight will stay the same. It really is that simple!
However, the difficulty comes in knowing exactly how many calories you should be eating in order to achieve your weight loss goals. Well, fear no longer, as our Calories Calculator will do all the maths and science for you, so you can focus on burning off the excess weight, shaping up, and looking great!
Just follow the instructions below and enter the required information, and in no time you'll be seeing genuine fat loss.
NOTE: This BMR calculator uses the Katch-McArdle Formula, which is based on your lean body mass. Unlike the more common Harris-Benedict Equation, which is based on an "average" body, the Katch-McArdle Formula also gives accurate results for people with above-average body fat levels, and those with below-average body fat levels. As it uses your actual lean body mass figure, this formula doesn't need your age, gender, or height. This makes this calculator probably the most accurate way to calculate your basal metabolic rate, short of using an indirect calorimeter to analyse your breath.

REMEMBER: There are two guaranteed ways to lose weight: One is to eat less food than your body needs, causing it to break down fat for energy, the other is to exercise more, so that your body demands even more energy. Of course, the ideal scenario is to do both: eat sensibly, and exercise regularly, then you'll soon be able to get your perfect figure.
