Your Daily Calorie Needs

This calculator provides you an estimate of how many calories you need to maintain your current weight. This tool takes into account your height, weight, age, gender and activity level. Remember, each one of us is unique, and this tool is not exact, but it is a very helpful guideline. Notice something? The more active you are the more calories you can eat and not gain weight!
