Video transcription: Hello people,
Today we will discuss the calories and quantity that one needs daily for a healthy lifestyle.

Calories are a measure of energy and are usually used to describe the energy content of foods. The number of calories your body consumes in one day is different for each person. 2000 calories is an approximate average value for what people eat per day.

Counting calories can help you lose weight, but by focusing on calories sources such as carbohydrates and proteins that are derived from foods such as whole grains, fish and poultry, can bring better overall nutrition.

There are three main factors involved in calculating how many calories your body needs per day
BMR, known as the main metabolic rate, is the amount of energy your body needs to work at rest. By comparison, men have a higher BMR than women.

The second factor is physical activity, it includes everything – from walking, lifting and just moving calories burns, but the number of calories you burn at each activity depends on your body weight.

The thermal effect of food is the last addition to the number of calories your body burns. This is the amount of energy your body uses to digest the food you eat.

To calculate the number of calories you spend in this process, multiply the total calories you consume in one day by 0.10 or 10 percent and get the results.
