Yes: To determine your dialy caloric intake we need your height or bmi and your level of activity.Theoritical you consume less calories dialy than your calculated requirement and you lose weight. However at mercy center we do not see that . We believe weight gain is very complex and multifactorial. We do not advocate calorie count because it is very cumberson and places patients under undue stress.
