Calories are a measure of the energy in the food we eat. We need energy to live, and calories are a measure of the energy we put in.

Many people with weight-loss goals observe the calories they are consuming to help manage and understand their energy intake.

How many calories should I eat to achieve a weight-loss goal?

The number of calories that you should eat to achieve a weight-loss goal is relative to the amount of fitness and other activity in your life.

If you have a weight-loss goal then you need to measure your calorie input with calorie expenditure.

60% of the calories you eat are used for basic bodily functions such as breathing, and anything above that relates to your lifestyle.

You can work this out by calculating your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) and TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure).
