Daily Calorie Needs for Individuals Weighing 141 to 150 Pounds

Article by Diet Bites


Defining the Body's Caloric Requirements

The difference in weighing 141 and 150 pounds for an inactive individual amounts to a little over 100 calories consumed per day. This is equal to any of the following foods: a banana, an apple, a pear, 1/2 a cupcake, 2 rice cakes, 5 prunes, about 2 ounces of grilled salmon, a large slice of cheese, a cup of low fat milk or a serving of low fat cottage cheese.

Unfortunately, the body doesn't recognize healthy vs unhealthy food choices when it comes to caloric content.

Simply put, when the body experiences an overage of kcals - it recognizes that these are a precious thing. Calories equal energy; and energy equals life.

Therefore, the human body's top priority is to find a way to save those precious amount of leftover energy for later use. They may mean the difference between life and death. The body's solution? Store excess energy (calories) in cells - commonly known as 'the fat cells'.

Adding Up the Values

One of the best methods for ensuring that the body remains in balance where caloric input/output is concerned is to add a good healthy dose of activity to the daily routine.

While the body regulates calories in a methodic manner, there is a balance and rhythm involved in the storage of excess energy.

While an individual may exceed their calorie needs for one day, weight gain may take several days to appear.

Calorie Needs for Individuals 141 to 150 Pounds

Individuals that weigh 141 pounds and lead an inactive lifestyle require about 1800 kcals daily. For moderate activity the requirements are 2115 and for active individuals 2397.

Those that weigh 150 pounds the needs are: Inactive Lifestyle, 1950, Moderate Activity 2250 and Active Lifestyle 2550 kcals.

As we view the data chart we can see that the base 1833 values for 141 pounds for an inactive person are not separated by a profuse amount of values; the top number equals 2550 kcals for the active 150 pound person.

With this said, when the body is in motion, it spends energy values. That short brisk walk - climbing up that set of stairs - or parking the auto and walking a way's to the entrance of the store all add up to impact the number on our bathroom scales.
