Once we have your daily energy needs calorie intake number, our calculator works out your target calories to reach your weight loss goal. The calculator reduces your daily energy needs number by approximately 15 – 20% (this may need to be higher or lower depending on your individual needs and you should use this as a guide – for example if you are still hungry then eat more, but if you are completely full and satisfied, eat less).

If you have a large amount of weight to lose you may want to reduce calories by more than 20- 25% or if you have a small amount of weight to lose you may want to reduce by 10%. Please note we do not recommend consuming less calories than your BMR calories.
