Cal.2 Eat

Here is an android app to find out how many calories you should eat everyday to maintain, loose or gain weight. This appilcation is based on RDA (Recommended Dietary allowance) given by ICMR (Indian Council of Medical Research as per new guidelines released in 2010. These calculations are based on the formula for BMR(Basal Metabolic Rate) with related PAL(Physical Activity Level) applied.
(Based on BMR and PAL as recommended by ICMR)

The Simplified Formulas for BMR as given by ICMR – RDA 2010 are as follows.

– BMR for Male (18-30) = 14.5 x body weight (Kg) +645
– BMR for Male (30-60) = 10.9 x body weight (Kg) +833
– BMR for Male ( >60  ) = 12.6 x body weight (Kg) +463

– BMR for Female (18-30) = 14 x body weight (Kg) +471
– BMR for Female (18-30) = 8.3 x body weight (Kg) +788
– BMR for Female ( >60 ) = 10.0 x body weight (Kg) +565

To find calorie need per day we multiply the above BMR with PAL (Physical Activity Level) multiplier which is as follows
– For Sedentary Work = 1.53
– For Moderate Work = 1.80
– For Heavy Work = 2.30

The value obtained by multiplication of BMR and PAL is the recommended Calorie Needs Per Day to maintain weight of a person.

To get a plan for reducing or gaining weight in the order of 1/2 kg / week or about 1 lbs per week a figure of 500 calories is subtracted or added to the maintainance calorie value.
