Your optimal energy requirement is calculated from:
- Your basal metabolic rate
- Your extra physical activity
Basal metabolic rate is the energy that your body needs every day at rest to ensure basic functions such as breathing and digestion. The more you move, the more calories you need, because your muscles burn more calories when they move. When creating your nutrition Plan, we will determine your basic needs with your age, gender, height and weight.
In addition, we calculate your energy needs based on your daily activity level, weekly exercise activity, and average sleep duration. The more you move, the more calories you need, as your muscles burn more energy. You can easily determine your optimal energy requirement with our free calorie calculator.
