Calorie Calculator

Use the calorie calculator to estimate the number of daily calories your body needs to maintain your current weight.

Select the statement that best describes your usual activity level. Examples

People judge the intensity of their activities differently. And activity levels can change over time. So think of your calorie estimate as a starting point and adjust it up or down as you alter your activity level.
