Recommended Protein Intake

Waiting for Calculation.



Your suggested daily protein intake is highlighted in green and is based upon the activity and exercise levels you have selected to maintain the body weight you have entered.

The standard daily protein intake recommended for the average American is 0.8 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight. This value is dependent upon a person's activity level, desired goals, and potential nutrient absorption issues related to certain medical conditions.
Your normal activity level and exercise level determine the calculations, which can range from 0.8 grams/kg to 1.2 grams/kg for your body weight. If muscle gain or weight gain/loss is desired, please consult a professional to determine the most accurate protein requirements to meet your goal.

 
 

Energy Expenditure (REE and TEE)

Waiting for calculation.
 





Your estimated energy expenditure is highlighted in green and is based upon the weight entered and the activity and exercise levels you have selected.

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and Resting Energy Expenditure (REE) are sometimes used interchangeably, and are similar in that they both estimate the amount of energy (Calories/kilocalories) required to sustain life.
BMR is typically considered to be the amount of energy a person is expending at the time they awaken from sleep, where REE is the amount of energy a person is expending when at rest, such as sitting on the couch.
Total Energy Expenditure (TEE) is the amount of energy required to maintain your weight based on your estimated REE and activity level.
There are several different equations for calculating Energy Expenditure. For the calculations above, the Mifflin-St Jeor equations are used.
