Use the Caloric Calculator to accurately determine how many calories and grams from each of the three "Macronutrients" (Carbohydrates, Protein, and Fat) you should be consuming daily. Input your goals and demographic information and within seconds you will be presented with a simple read out of what your body needs to get the results you want.
Do you have a specific number of calories you want to burn during your exercise today? Use our Activity Calculator to see just how many you burn during your favorite exercise, daily activities and even while you eat! Add up all the activities you perform per day and see just how many calories you actually burn. Having a realistic guide to your daily calorie burn will help you reach your goals even faster.
Based on your individual goals, your body will require a specific amount of protein in order to accomplish them. Allow the Protein Calculator to tell you the recommended range per day, as well as per meal/supplement and remove the guessing game from your plan! Just do not forget, healthy carbohydrates and fats are necessary, too!
Different goals require different intensity levels. Use the Heart Beat Pulse Calculator to determine where your pulse should be to accomplish yours quickly and safely. Looking to trim down, target the "Fat Burning" rate. Want to build endurance, use the "Aerobic Activity" gauge. Just be sure to never go above your "Max Heartbeat" range for too long.
Body Mass Index (BMI) is a measure of body fat based on height and weight that applies to both adult men and women. It will provide you with a simple to understand (see below categories) ranking of where you stand in regards to overall fitness. It is important to remember that various types of bodies will affect the number differently. Utilize the Caloric Calculator to see the number of calories you should be consuming per day, based on your goal, and the BMR and Activity Calculators to give yourself a good idea of what the number of calories you burn daily.
You use energy (burn calories) no matter what you are doing, even while sleeping. This calculator will help you determine your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), which is the number of calories you would burn everyday even if you were to stay in bed (we do not recommend that!). This formula is based on multiple factors, which makes it more accurate than calculating calorie needs based on body weight alone. Remember, bodies that have more lean muscle burn more calories than those with less. Thus, for the very fit and those classified as obese, this formula will not be as accurate as with those falling in between.
What you eat before exercise can make the difference between an energetic workout or a tired, "when am I going to be done" workout.
