Recommended daily calories from food

Every day we need to consume a certain number of calories necessary for our body. Find out what the recommended daily calorie intake is.

Through food and our own diet that we follow every day, we provide our body with the energy it needs to perform all the functions it carries out at all times, and we also provide the nutrients it needs on a daily basis.

This energy is provided by the different calories, carbohydrates, proteins and fats that we find in the different foods that we consume every day.

Therefore, there is a number of recommended daily calories that we must consume to provide our body with the energy it needs. Depending on whether you are a man or a woman, and the physical activity and lifestyle that the person follows, these caloric needs will vary. But be careful, since excess calories are stored in our body in the form of fat.

Recommended daily calories

Calories needed per day

  • Man: between 2,000 to 2,500 Kcal. /day.
  • Woman: between 1,500 to 2,000 Kcal. /day.

We must bear in mind that this amount of kilocalories needed per day will in turn depend on the person’s lifestyle; that is to say, of his profession, depending on the physical activity, and the way of life that follows.

For example, if a man weighs 90 kilos and maintains a healthy weight based on his height and physical complexion (you can find out more with our BMI calculator ), he will need to consume 2,160 calories each day, necessary to maintain his basal metabolism.
