Healthy Weight for Height, Caloric Needs Based on Age & Weight

Written by Diet Bites

 


Weight Based on Height

The following data depicts healthy weight based on height and it also includes data to assist in planning your caloric needs for your weight loss plan based on your height, your activity level as well as your age.

Take note that the older that we get, the less daily calories that our body requires, even if we remain at our former active state. An older body - no matter how fit cannot burn as many calories as its younger form did.

We have based the daily caloric needs on a mildly active lifestyle; if you walk about 10 minutes per day or perform minimal daily tasks, then you are considered as having an mildly active lifestyle.

In order to be considered moderately active, the individual must walk over 5,000 steps per day - or there abouts. To be considered active, they would need to walk over 12,000 steps per day.

Notice that males require about 1,000 calories per day than women due to their muscle mass; most women are built with less muscle and more fat.
