However, as you learn more about eating the right foods, many people find it helpful to use a calorie calculator to better understand the food they are currently eating and the calories they carry. The link below will help you to establish a baseline of calories needed to maintain your current weight. Keep in mind that there are many other factors which affect this, so this should serve as a starting point for you.

Body Mass Index:
Body mass index is the relationship of a person's weight to their height. The National Institutes of Health define underweight, normal weight, and overweight according to BMI. A BMI of greater than 27.3% for women and 27.8% for men is considered overweight. A BMI of 30% indicates obesity. Note this calculator is for adults.
