Maintenance calories are the total amount of calories required on a daily basis to maintain your current body weight with no gains or losses in fat or muscle tissue.
Formula to calculate maintenance calorie.
Weekly intensity is graded from 9 to 11.
- 9 = low intensity training
- 10 = moderate intensity training
- 11 = high intensity training
Once selected, weekly intensity is added to weekly training hours.
Suppose you ride your bike for 3 hours weekly, if riding a bike is a moderate intensity training and your target body weight is 120 pounds, calculate your maintenance calories.
Therefore, your maintenance calories is 1,560.
