Did you know?

  • Depending on your actual body composition, you may burn more or fewer calories. These numbers are only estimates.
  • Protein helps build lean body mass. Each kilogram of lean body mass burns about 28 calories per day; while fat tissue burns very few calories – only about 4 calories per kilogram per day. So, the more lean body mass, the more calories you burn each day.
  • If you are active, you will be burning more calories than your estimated resting metabolic rate (see above).
  • If you eat about as many calories as you burn each day, your weight will stay about the same. If you consistently eat more, you will gain weight. If you eat consistently less, you will go down in weight.
