Not everybody needs 2,000 calories a day. Your needs are highly individual and determined by much more than your workouts. Use our free calculator to find out how many calories you really need.

This calorie calculator works by estimating your total daily energy expenditure, or TDEE, and measuring it against your weight goal. TDEE, which is expressed as an average number of calories, includes the amount of energy required to perform basic bodily functions at rest combined with the energy expended by your daily activities.

This free calculator is a great start for someone looking to get a handle on their targeted caloric needs. Note that it does not take into account your current eating habits or metabolism. This calculator does not dictate macronutrients ratios as those are very individual and require expert attention. See our online training plans to hire a professional nutrition coach to help you.
