Maintenance Calorie calculator

Recommended Posts

Dear All,

Ive been working out for only two months and I have had some very useful advice from people on this forum so I would like to thank them for that.  This has been publically and via the messaging service.

I am a 45 year old male, 77.1Kg in weight, 5' 6" tall and around 17% bodyfat and workout 3 times a week, run once a week and have a goal of gaining some muscle and loosing some fat (like everyone I suppose).  In my youth when I was working out (between 16 and 18 years old) I paid zero attention to nutrition and had about 10% bodyfat but added no muscle.  This time I am trying to apply more thought behind what I eat.

I would be very grateful if someone could advise on a calculator to allow me to calculate my 'maintenance calorie number' if there is such an expression.

Many thanks

many thanks, this will give me something to work with.  It came out at 2500, I have had other advice which suggests 1900 so I'll go midway.  Thanks for your help,
