Calorie Intake Calculator for Weight Maintenance

  • Stay fit
  • Get healthier
  • Learn about food

If you’re at the end of your weight loss journey or already pleased with your weight, you might wonder what and how much you can eat to maintain your current weight. Lifesum has all the tools you need to continue your health journey beyond weight – it’s all about getting to know your body.

Calories needed to maintain weight

A woman needs about 2000 kcal per day to remain weight stable and a man 2500kcal. However, if you have a desk based job, drive to work and don’t get a lot of exercise, a typical woman will need about 1700kcal per day. You also have to consider the individual burn rate, which depends on your muscle mass (more muscles = higher metabolism), lifestyle and DNA.

Lifesum macro trackingHow do I know my personal calorie intake for weight maintenance?

When using Lifsum’s app, you’ll get a full overview of the calories you need to eat, as well as the division of carbs, fat and protein. All you need to do is to:

  • Enter your height, weight, and gender
  • Set your daily activity level, or choose automatic tracking to measure movements from your iPhone or wearables
  • Track your activities on a daily basis

Lifesum does the calorie maintenance calculation for you. The calories we recommend will vary depending on your activity level that particular day.

Eat more when you workout to maintain your weight

Since muscle mass plays a big role in your metabolism, it’s important to not eat too little after a weight loss journey. Eating less than you need can result in muscle loss and decrease your calorie burn over time. To ensure you eat the perfect amount of calories for your body, choose a weight maintenance program in Lifesum’s app, available for free on the App Store & Google play.

I absolutely loooove this app to track my macros. I’ve been doing it for a month and it has helped so much with staying on track. I also have an Apple Watch so it helps showing the calories I’ve burned as well. Absolutely love it and highly recommend it!! *****
