Daily Calorie Requirement Chart

Add or subtract the specified calories from - to your required daily calorie intake. Note that if you are classed as inactive, you need to subtract calories from your daily allowance to maintain weight. The more active you are the more calories the body needs for energy.

For example if you are a 35 year old women who sits at a computer each day and weighs over 90 kilos - 200 lbs, you would need 2400 calories less 960 to simply maintain your weight. A total of 1440 calories per day.

An example for a male who is over 55, plays golf twice a week is he can consume 2400 calories daily to maintain his weight and on his golf days have a treat equal to 380 calories and not put on weight.
