How to Work Weight Loss Calculator?

The weight loss is determined by calculating the desired amount of weight to lose per week based on the individual's current weight, goal weight, and the duration in weeks.

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR):

BMR represents the number of calories your body needs to maintain basic physiological functions at rest, such as breathing and circulation, over a 24-hour period.
The formula for calculating BMR varies slightly for men and women:
For men:
BMR = 10 × weight(kg) + 6.25 × height(cm)− 5 × age(years) + 5
For women:
BMR = 10 × weight(kg) + 6.25 × height(cm) − 5 × age(years) − 161
This formula is based on the Harris-Benedict equation and takes into account weight, height, age, and gender.

Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE):

TDEE is an estimation of the total number of calories your body needs in a day, taking into account your activity level on top of your BMR.
It is calculated by multiplying the BMR by a factor that represents your activity level.
The activity level factors used in the code are:
Sedentary (little to no exercise): 1.2
Lightly active (light exercise/sports 1-3 days a week): 1.375
Moderately active (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days a week): 1.55
Very active (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days a week): 1.725
Extra active (very hard exercise/sports & physical job): 1.9

TDEE = BMR * activity

Weight Loss Calculation:

The code calculates the desired weight loss per week based on the input parameters (current weight, goal weight, and duration in weeks).
It then adjusts the caloric needs to achieve the target weight within the specified time frame.
WeightLossPerWeek = (weight - goalWeight) / weeksToGoal

Caloric Needs:

Caloric needs to achieve the target weight are determined by subtracting the estimated calories burned through weight loss per week from the TDEE.
The assumption is that 1 kg of fat is equivalent to approximately 7700 calories.
These formulas provide estimates and serve as a starting point for managing weight loss goals. Individual results may vary based on factors such as metabolism, body composition, and other health considerations.
CaloricNeeds = TDEE - (WeightLossPerWeek * 7700 / 7)
