Daily Calorie Needs for Individuals Weighing 111 to 120 Pounds

Article by Diet Bites


How Many Calories Necessary to Support Body Weight

The difference in weighing 111 pounds and 120 pounds for an inactive individual amounts to a medium-sized banana per day. Even those healthy calories are stored away in the fat cells for future use if they are not required to meet the body's fuel and energy needs.

Keep in mind that more kcals are required for moderate and active lifestyles than for inactive individuals.

Simply put, when we are more active - we can enjoy a lot more fuel (food) for the body.

For example, a 120 pound individual requires almost 500 more calories in their daily diet when they go from inactive to active. That's enough calories for an entire meal of 3 ounces of grilled salmon, 1 serving of rice with light margarine, a serving of green beans and a slice of whole grain bread.

The Calorie Needs Chart below provides an example of how many calories the body requires based on Inactive, Moderate and Active lifestyles.

Different elements influence the Calorie-Needs Equation, such as gender, muscle mass, age and so forth - just a few reasons why the family physician should be consulted for personal evaluation of calorie needs.

Calorie Needs for Individuals 111 to 120 Pounds

Individuals that weigh 111 pounds and lead an inactive lifestyle require about 1450 kcals per day in order to remain the same size.

For moderate activity the energy requirements are increase to about 1650 and for active individuals to about 1900.

Making the Best Energy Choices

Be sure to choose foods that are healthy based on recommended Food Group servings. For individuals requiring about 1,400 kcals per day they will require about 2-3 pieces of fruit, 1.5 cups of vegetables, 5 ounces of grains (whole grains are the healthiest choice), about 4 ounces of protein-based foods whether vegetable or animal-based, 2 cups of milk and a bit of oil.

Skim dairy products are the best choices as they contain more calcium per ounce and less calories. Discretionary kcal amounts are optional calories which the dieter can add to their daily diet plan - up to 132 for the 1,400 calorie daily diet.
