Do the Math

Step 5: Do the Math

It's time to figure out how many calories you should be eating in order to reach your weight goal. Once you know this magic number, you can choose the food plan that's best suited to your body's needs.

Your weight-loss equation:

655 + (4.4 times your goal weight in pounds) + (4.6 times your height in inches) - (4.7 times your age in years) = base calories

Multiply this number by:
1.2 if you get little or no exercise
1.3 if you're somewhat active

The total is the number of calories you should eat each day in order to reach your goal weight and maintain it.
