Using the WeightWare
Metabolic Rate Calculator

This window allows you to quickly estimate your "Metabolic Rate". This is an estimate of the number of calories (or, joules) that you need to consume each day to maintain your current weight. This estimate will help you to set your initial calorie intake goals to achieve weight loss.

This calculator can be accessed from the "Tools" menu.

Determining your Metabolic Rate

After entering Height, Weight, Gender, and Age, use the slider to select the Activity Level that best describes your day-to-day activities. Your predicted metabolic rate will automatically be calculated and displayed in the field.

If you are interested in losing weight, subtract 500 calories (2100 joules) from your metabolic rate and try to limit your daily diet to this level. This should result in weight loss of 1 lb (0.5 kg) per week, a reasonable and healthy goal for most people.
