Calorie Deficit Calculator
To lose weight you should be in a calorie deficit. This means eating less calories than what you use. This forces your body to use its stored energy (fat) and therefore you can lose weight. For example, if you burn 2,000 calories a day but eat 1,500 calories, you would be in a 500-calorie deficit. When you are in a calorie deficit, it is important to meet your protein requirements and have a balanced diet to avoid losing muscle and becoming malnourished.
You may want to lose some weight prior to your surgery or embark on a new diet plan. Our calorie deficit calculator will make it easier to understand your daily calorie requirements to achieve this. The calculator relies on the Mifflin-St Jeor equation and should be used as a guide.
It is important to note, after bariatric surgery your daily calorie intake is likely to be lower than this. Our specialist bariatric team will be able to advise you further of your requirements after surgery.
