Do you count how may calories you eat every day? If so, how do you know how many calories you need to eat to lose or maintain weight? Well, Authority Nutrition now has a calorie calculator that tells you just how much you should eat.

Based on the Mifflin-St Jeor equation, just plug-in your sex, age, weight, height and activity level into the calculator.  Plus you’ll find some tips to cut your calorie intake without starving.

Since my diet is low-carb, I’m not a calorie counter. Using My Fitness Pal to track my carbs, I do get to see my daily caloric consumption. On average I eat about 1550-1700 calories a day.  According to the Mifflin-St. Jeor equation, I’m spot on with fast weight loss. Sweet!

  2. That’s a cool calculator. Except for the part where it says if I want to lose weight fast I have to eat 1015 calories a day. I guess that just means losing weight fast is not even close to reasonable for me. :p
