Defining Energy Needs, Males: Small Size Body Frame
Even larger guys have small body frames - and on the flip-side, even small men have large body frames.
Our weight is more dependent upon our height and activity levels than our body's skeletal frame size. However, when one has a larger skeleton it can support more weight than the smaller size - just as is the case with the frame of a building. Fact is, one would not set a steel roof on a grass hut.
Daily Energy Requirements
Our Daily Calorie Needs Chart is a fantastic spot to start where weight loss planning is concerned.
As we can see by the data below, the taller the individual, the more calories they require per day. And the more active the individual, the more calories they can consume per day.
An Example in Play:
The Daily Calorie Needs for a man with a small frame who is 5'5" tall and leads a Moderate Lifestyle needs an average calorie intake of about 2055.
When the man is active he can consume about 300 more calories on this day. That's enough to enjoy a roasted chicken breast! Or, three ounces of pan roasted flounder, a cup of steamed green beans fresh from the garden, a one half cup serving of reduced fat cottage cheese, a small whole grain dinner roll, and a serving of reduced fat margarine.
Setting Fitness Goals
When setting your weight loss goals - or when working to maintain your current weight, we encourage you to keep in mind that your body is different from everyone else's in the world.
You are unique. Even if your friend is your identical height and body frame size, you will require different caloric values in your daily life. Therefore, use all charts to help define your weight loss plan but never consider them as 'set in stone'.

Choosing the amounts of daily energy that you wish to input into your eating plan truly matter in the area of kcal content. When foods and drinks which hold significant values are chosen, the result is a smaller meal plate. In addition, foods and beverages that tend to be higher in kcal content tend to be refined foods - some, not even close to they way they were when they were harvested.
