Calorie Count For 49 Year Old 200 Lb Man
I am a 25 year old 175 lb man who exercises 3-4 times a wk What's the minimum calories I can hav without havin my body go into starve mode & store fat?
Sorry, but...: I can't answer that question because the assumption you make that "going into starvation mode" makes you "store fat" is incorrect. (Maybe I misunderstood what you were asking.) A very low calorie diet may slow down your metabolism as a protective mechanism against starvation but, if you're burning off more calories than you take in, you will lose weight (including fat). ...Read more

How much calorie should they have per day:40 year old women height 162cm weight 55kg. Man age47 wight79kg height172cm?
Many Wrong Variables: A calorie is a unit of heat, a food calorie is a kcal, 1, 000 of the small calories. Calories are measured in a calorimeter, a sealed insulated container in which the food is burned to water, co2 & ash. What does this have to do with eating the food? Not a great deal. Calories are different. The bigger issue is how we respond to the food, how this alters our body & body function. See: nusi.Org. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I'm 26 year old man. As I get older and metabolism slows down, how much calories shud I eat to stay slim. Exercise bike is only exercise I can do?
No one number: You need to tailor your intake to your needs. Do weigh yourself regularly as it is difficult to lose weight once it gets out of control. It is good that you exercise. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
I'm a 5"10, 77kg, 25 year old man. If I cut calories by 600 below my daily needs what fat to muscle loss ratio can I expect per week. I don't exercise or intend to at this point. I know it's a difficult question but an estimate will be fine?
No consistent ratio: The ratio of fat to muscle loss with any given calorie deficit depends partly on the nutritional composition of your diet. You need the proper balance of unrefined carbs, high quality protein and some fat to avoid muscle loss & maintain stable blood sugar levels. Regardless, weight training is ESSENTIAL to maintaining muscle mass. See >hsph.harvard.edu/obesity prevention ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I'm a 26 year old man. I weight 13:5 stone. Can I live healthily on 1600 calories per day to aid weight loss. Only exercise I can do is exercise bike?
Must be careful: You probably won't compromise your health with 1600 calorie intake but you must be sure to eat healthy food. Your diet should be limited to fruits, vegetables, and lean protein. You should avoid processed and preserved foods that would be less nutritionally dense than their fresh counterparts. ...Read more
Calorie intake: There is no definite answer for this question. Every person has a basal energy expenditure (just being alive) and energy used in activities. Children who are growing need some calories beyond the total energy expenditure and people who are dieting need a few calories less. A very active 10 year old may need >2000 calories a day while a sedentary 10 year old may only need 1000 calories a day. ...Read more
