Calorie needs to Maintain Weight
Once you have determined your BMR (2,144), you can multiply this number by the activity level that most suits your lifestyle, to determine the appropriate number of calories you need to consume to maintain your weight.
The more active you are the more calories you will require. This is because you are already burning the calories you need in order to sustain life.
Calorie needs to Gain Weight
To gain weight, you need to take more calories than your total energy needs.
If you eat more calories than your body metabolism needs for your activity level, you will gain weight.
There are 3,500 calories in every pound of body fat (0.5 Kg). So, if you eat 500 calories more a day than your body needs, you will gain one pound every week.
