Energy Requirement Example
The Daily Calorie Needs for a woman with a large frame who is 5'5" tall and leads a Moderate Lifestyle requires an average calorie intake of about 2190. If the lady exceeds the 'Active' status then she will require even more calories.
For example, Dana is a mountain climber - an avid one. She burns quite a number of calories amid her climbing and depending upon how much time she spends climbing, she will burn more or less calories.
As winter rears, Dana is planning to climb a snowy mountain in the bitter cold with a team. She may burn 6000 or more calories amid her short climb.
Simply put, even the environment in which we live influences the number of calories that our bodies use and expend.
Let's go a step further and look at Dana's climbing partner, Sue. While they are the same height and will perform the same amount of activity, Sue will burn 1000 more calories amid her climb because she has a more efficient metabolism. She has excellent genes.
