The calorie calculator uses physical characteristics (weight, height, age, gender), activity level and weight goals (gain, lose or maintain weight) to estimate daily calorie needs. In addition to calorie estimations, the calculator provides: BMR, BMI, healthy weight range, macronutrient distribution and meal & snack size examples.
I subscribed to the bulking theory of doing whatever it took to pack on as much weight as possible for quite awhile. This dangerous bulking mentality allows you to get away with a lot. While pretending to be healthy, you eat as much as you want, follow few, if any nutrition rules and never do any sort of cardio, all in the name of gaining weight. I finally realized this permanent state of ever increasing weight led to deteriorating health, a decrease in cardiovascular performance and an unflattering physical appearance. Today, I'm launching my War on Bulking in an attempt to get people to see it's unacceptable to sacrifice health in the name of gaining size.
Losing weight and burning fat are sometimes seen as two different goals but the steps needed to accomplish either are identical. At the core of both is calorie balance; the relationship between how many calories you burn and eat. During positive calorie balance, the body stores fat while a negative calorie balance forces the body to burn fat leading to weight loss. This calories in versus calories out relationship dictates whether the body stores fat causing weight gain or burns fat causing weight loss.
