Have you ever wondered how many calories you need per day to maintain your weight? This calculator may be the tool you need! I discovered it in the November issue of Health magazine.
- Enter your info into the BMR calculator. BMR stands for Basal Metabolic Rate. Think of your BMR as the number of calories your body needs per day just to get by. In order for your bodily functions to operate you need a minimal amount of “fuel”. These calories are it.
- Once you have written down your Basal Metabolic Rate, select Daily Calorie Needs.
- At this point, determine your activity level (best to underestimate instead of overestimate). Multiply your BMR by the number associated with your activity level. This number is the “general” amount of calories you need per day to maintain your current weight.
- You can now select Calorie Intake to Loose Weight or Calorie Intake to Gain Weight for more guidance.
How long have you maintained your current weight? What strategies or tools work for you?
This tip came from one of my class participants. She makes time for exercise during the day by adding alerts/reminders to her smart phone. She uses these alerts/reminders to take a 15-minute break. During this time she walks up and down the halls or uses the Step platform that she keeps by her desk. For variety, she performs a few of the exercises that she has clipped from magazines. She keeps them posted on the back of her office door. Creating alerts/reminders forces her to accomplish a minimum of 15-minutes of physical activity. This system works as a reminder to stop and move. It also helps relieve stress throughout the day. Physical activity can be accumulated throughout the day. Strive for a minimum of 150 minutes of cardiovascular training a week.
