Calorie equation
Calorie equation
12/31/12 11:27 AM
Hi all,

I'm getting ready to re-start the Insanity program for the second time. I was about three weeks short of completing it when my boyfriend and I moved from Washington to Tennessee. However now that we are here, unpacked and ready to try again we can't find our nutrition guide. Anyone here willing to post the equation to figure out how many calories I should be taking in?

Thanks!

Hello! Awesome for picking up Insanity again!

The Insanity Nutrition Guide uses the Harris Benedict Formula - here's the info from the wiki:

The original Harris-Benedict equations published in 1918 and 1919.[1][2]

Men
BMR = 66.4730 + (13.7516 x weight in kg) + (5.0033 x height in cm) – (6.7550 x age in years)

Women
BMR = 655.0955 + (9.5634 x weight in kg) + (1.8496 x height in cm) – (4.6756 x age in years)




And then your multiplier:

Step 2 – applying the Harris-Benedict Principle

The following table enables calculation of an individual's recommended daily calorie intake to maintain current weight.[4]


Little to no exercise - 1.2
Light exercise (1–3 days per week) - 1.375
Moderate exercise (3–5 days per week) - 1.55
Heavy exercise (6–7 days per week) - 1.725
Very heavy exercise (twice per day, extra heavy workouts) - 1.9
