How to achieve your fat-loss target

Your Resting Metabolic Rate is approximately 0 calories per day

Your Resting Metabolic Rate is the number of calories your body burns in 24 hours whilst at rest and is also referred to as resting daily energy expenditure (RDEE). 

The calculation uses the Mifflin-St.Jeor equation and is an estimate. Actual calorie expenditure can vary.

Now select your activity level

Your maintenance calories are approximately 0 per day

Your maintenance calories are the number of calories you need to consume to maintain your weight (keep it constant), and this takes into account the amount of exercise you say you do.

If you eat below maintenance (a calorie deficit) you will lose weight, if you eat above maintenance you will gain weight.

If your weight changes, your maintenance calories will change too.

The calorie target we send you is an estimate based on the information you have provided. Most people over-estimate the amount of activity they do and under-estimate how much food they eat (which is why they put on fat!) Bodyscan recommends fat-loss through a sustainable, calorie-controlled diet of not less than 1200 calories a day for women and 1400 calories a day for men. The calorie value we send you will not guarantee fat loss (because it is an estimate based on your claimed activity level) but being in a sustained energy (calorie) deficit over a long period of time will.
