You determine your Basal Metabolic Rate, and then you apply that rate to something called the „Harris Benedict Formula”, which takes into account your daily activity levels (calorie expenditure).
Measure your height in centimeters and your weight in kilograms. Next, apply the Harris-Benedict Formula. The infographic provides some food for thought. Losing weight is about eating fewer calories than you need to maintain your current weight – achieving a caloric deficit.
The infographic advises – do not overdo it. Choose a reasonable deficit, stay consistent and see how your body responds. From there you can re-adjust.
