Pull out your math skills

Now calculate your calories in a method used by Nancy Clark, Sports Nutritionist, example:

Take your weight = 120lbs as an example

Multiply this 120 lbs. by 10, 120 x 10 = 1200 calories which is the number of calories your body expends for its BMR - Basal Metabolic Rate. The BMR is energy needed to sustain the metabolic activities of the cells and tissues and to maintain circulatory, respiratory, and gastrointestinal and renal processes. Simply, how many calories it takes to sleep all day.

Now, take the 1200 calories and divide it by 2 or 1/2 of 1200 calories for your adult daily activities = 600 calories That is what we would refer to as normal stuff: going to school, grocery store, studying, etc. 1200 + 600 = 1800 calories /day

Next: If you do purposeful exercise then you add ~400-600 calories per hour. I will say 400 calories as I workout. Unless you workout everyday nonstop 60 solid minutes. The calories now equal 1200 + 600 + 400 = 2200 calories
