How many calories should I consume daily ?

So you’re wondering how many calories you should consume in one day? Well it’s not that hard to determine the technique I will be showing you a simple calculation of math, this calculation does not take Einstein to solve. Intake results should vary on the amount of exercise you have gotten in that day.

To get how many calories you can consume in a day you need to compute basal metabolic rate. This is just big words for the simple term calorie intake. To figure out this calculation you must multiply your weight by 10 to find your calorie intake.
Ex. If you weigh 120 pounds your basal metabolic rate would be 1200
(120 x 10 = 1200)

This is not 100 % accurate many different factors can change the result of how many calories you can intake, such as age, gender, fat, muscle, exercise, and amount of calories you burn in a day.
