Definition: Calorie

The name calorie is used for two units of energy. The small calorie or gram calorie (symbol: cal) is the approximate amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of one gram of water by one degree Celsius. The large calorie, kilogram calorie, dietary calorie, nutritionist's calorie or food calorie (symbol: Cal, equiv: kcal) is the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water by one degree Celsius. The large calorie is thus equal to 1000 small calories or one kilocalorie (symbol: kcal). In the International System of Units, the joule. One small calorie is around 4.2 joules (one large calorie or kilocalorie is therefore approx. 4.2 kilojoules). Factors used to convert calories to joules are numerically equivalent to expressions of specific heat capacity of water in joules per gram or per kilogram. The conversion factor depends on the definition adopted.

"For a more balanced approach to a 1 pound per week weight loss, increase your activity. Decrease calorie intake by 250 calories per day and exercising to expend (use up) the other 250 calories. This approach prevents a decrease in your metabolic rate and promotes increased lean muscle mass."

Our daily calorie calculator for females and males will assist you if you are trying to lose weight or control obesity.

The daily calorie calculator results provide you with your basal metabolic rate (BMR), daily requirements of calories, carbohydrates, proteins, and fats in terms of calories and grams/day in adult women and men.

Results Include:

  • Calories needed to maintain your current weight.
  • Calories required to lose a certain number of pounds per week.
  • Calories needed to gain weight (number of pounds per week)

  • To gain weight, 500 calories are added per day for each pound you want to gain per week.

Total calorie levels < 1200 calories are not recommended and weight loss of > 2 pounds per week is not recommended.
