    calculating maintenance calories

    How do you figure out how many calories you burn in a day based on your weight? I would assume you need to have a rough estimate of your body fat percentage first, because it is lean mass that determines metabolic rate.

    I recently attended a nutrition seminar and they stated women need 11 calories per pound of body weight and men need 12. Yeah once again we women get the short end but that seems to be the norm. Hope this helps.

    I found a great site with sound information recently and it has a BMR calculator. You might want to give it a try:

    http://www.hussman.org/fitness/bmrcalc.htm

    You do need to know your bodyfat or at least have a general idea as to what it is. When you pull up this address there is a javascript prompt at the top in which you need to input your personal info.

    Why would women burn less than men? It all depends on body composition. Most men require more calories because they are naturally more muscular than women, but maintenance depends on several factors, ie your body composition and age. Maintenance != BMR. Maintenance depends on your activity level, while your basal metabolic rate tells you how many calories you need to function properly (even if you nap all day).

    I suggest you read Emma's sticky in this section. I found it pretty accurate.

    If it is important to you, you will find a way.
    If it's not, you will find an excuse.
