  1. Determine your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR): This is the number of calories your body burns at rest. You can find your BMR using an online calculator.
  2. Keep an account of your daily activity. Once you know what your BMR is you can adjust it based on your activity level. If you have a normal lifestyle, you will need to eat less than your BMR to maintain your weight. If you have a more active lifestyle, you will need to eat more than your BMR to maintain your weight.
  3. Keep your goals in mind. If you want to lose weight, you will need to eat less than your daily calorie intake. If you want to gain weight you’ll need to eat more than your daily calorie intake.
  4. Track your food intake. Make a food diary or use an app to track the number of calories you are consuming each day. This will help you see where you can make changes to meet your daily calorie needs.
  5. Get professional help. If you are not sure how to calculate your BMR or how many calories you need, it’s best to consult a registered dietitian or a healthcare professional. They will be able to give you personalized help based on your age, sex, weight, and level of activity.
  6. Be thoughtful of nutrient density: calorie intake is important, but not all calories are made equal. Make sure you are consuming nutrient-dense food, such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats, to get the most out of your calorie intake.
