Understanding your body's energy requirements can help guide you when making nutritional choices. There are two ways to determine your
energy requirements - the accurate way and the easy way:
- Accurate way - there are 3 primary components that make up your body's energy expenditure:
- Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) - most of the body's energy, about 60-70%, goes to supporting the ongoing metabolic work of the body's
cells. This includes such activities as heart beat, respiration and maintaining body temperature. To determine your BMR:
- For adult males - Multiply the body weight by 10; add double the body weight to this value.
[i.e., for a 150 lb male, 1,500 + (2 x 150)=1,800 cal/day BMR]
- For adult females - Multiply body weight by 10; add the body weight to this value.
[i.e., for a 120 lb female, 1,200 + 120=1,320 cal/day BMR]
- Energy Expended During Physical Activity - this second component of the equation depends upon your level of physical activity.
Physical activity has a profound effect on human energy expenditure and contributes 20-30% to the body's total energy output. One of the most
reliable methods in calculating calories burned during physical activity is the Metabolic Energy (MET) Method. This is the method we have
used for the Fitness Partner Connection's
Activity Calculator for 158 different activities.
- Thermic Effect of Food - the last component to calculate has to do with your body's management of food. The increase in energy
required to digest food is referred to as the thermic effect of food (TEF) and it's simple to determine:
TEF = total kcals consumed x 10%
[i.e., 2,000 kcals consumed/day x 0.10 = 200 kcals expended for TEF]
- Easy Way - if the above calculations seem too confusing or tedious, you can roughly estimate your daily calorie requirements using
this simple formula:
- for sedentary people: Weight x 14 = estimated cal/day
- for moderately active people: Weight x 17 = estimated cal/day
- for active people: Weight x 20 = estimated cal/day
Note: Moderately Active is defined as 3-4 aerobic sessions per week. Active is defined as 5-7 aerobic sessions per week.
