I think that we spoke more than once about the caloric content of certain foods on Alimero’s pages 🙂 And knowing this information, you can at least roughly calculate your daily menu and decide how many calories we have we get with food.
But now I suggest you find out how many calories we have. spend, doing some work, or doing nothing at all;)
I am sure that you know that we always spend calories, not only during active activities, such as digging a vegetable garden. Calories go away even at night while we are resting, because at this time we breathe, our lungs and other organs work, the heart beats. And the body also needs energy for these processes.
But to find out exactly how many calories you personally need, you can use a special formula:
655 plus (9.6 x weight in kg) plus (1.8 x height in cm) – (4.7 x age in years).
The result that turned out, you need to multiply by:
1.2 – in the absence of at least some physical activity.
1.38 – with weekly exercise or morning exercises.
1.55 – with half-hour sports activities 3-5 times a week.
1.73 – with daily workouts in the gym or very hard physical work.
So, the resulting figure is your daily calorie intake. If you use more than this figure, there will be a weight gain. But if you want to lose weight, then reduce the consumption of calories by 20%.
And now I propose to take a look at the compilation and calculate for the sake of interest how much calories you spend on your regular day 🙂
