Great Weight Loss Calculator!

Ever wonder how many calories you need to consume (rather not consume) in order to hit your target weight goal?

Wonder no more, this free calorie calculator courtesy of Calorie Count has your magic answer!

What I like most about this calculator is that it takes a variety of personal factors into consideration before making that goal recommendation, such as:
  • Gender
  • Age
  • Height
  • Level of Activity
  • Target Date

I like to cheat and say that I have a sedentary lifestyle, even though I strive to workout 3-5 times a week.  This way I can afford to cheat (either in the food department or exercise department) sometimes and not feel like I am sabotaging my efforts.  I recommend experimenting with the calculator to see how much those calories differ based on activity level and target date.

Keep in mind that in order to achieve sustainable, long-term weight loss, you want to lose no more than one pound per week.  I know, I know - we all want the overnight results, but trust me, this will benefit you in the long run. It's better to be the tortoise and not the hare in this race.

Happy losing!
The Hoff
