Anyone who reads information about losing weight is certain to hear a lot of talk about calories. Cutting calories, burning calories, substituting calories – all of these and more are frequent topics of discussion for dieters. But how many calories are you currently consuming? What effect will cutting back on calories have on your weight? How much can you eat and still squeeze into a smaller clothing size for your high school reunion in a couple of months? All of these questions and more can be answered using weight loss calculators.

Weight loss calculators use information about your specific situation to make estimations about your diet. For example, by inputting your current height, weight, gender, and level of activity, you can determine how many calories you must consume to maintain your weight. In order to lose weight, you simply have to reduce your calories below that level.

Next, you’ll wonder how many calories you should cut. Once again, weight loss calculators can help. You can enter your ideal weight, current calorie level, and either a target date (and the calculator will tell you how many extra calories you’ll need to burn a day) or a suggestion for how many calories you’d like to cut (and the calculator will give you an estimated date for reaching your target weight).

Many companies – usually those trying to convince you to try the latest diet fad – try to make weight loss seem like a nearly mystical process. However, losing weight is a very straightforward proposition when you look at the science of cutting calories. Weight loss calculators can help you to come up with a solid dieting plan that will help you reach your goals effectively, without endangering your health through a lack of nutrition, or riding a roller coaster of weight loss and gain.
