Understanding Caloric Needs

When we eat and drink more calories than we use up, our bodies store the excess as body fat. If this continues over time we may put on weight. As a guide, an average man needs around 2,500kcal (10,500kJ) a day to maintain a healthy body weight. For an average woman, that figure is around 2,000kcal (8,400kJ) a day. These values can vary depending on age, size and levels of physical activity, among other factors.

Our bodies need energy to keep us alive and our organs functioning normally. When we eat and drink, we put energy into our bodies. We use up that energy through everyday movement, which includes everything from breathing to running. But, to maintain a stable weight, the energy we put into our bodies must be the same as the energy we use by normal bodily functions and physical activity.

An important part of a healthy diet is balancing the energy you put into your bodies with the energy you use.
