FIT Calculator: Calorie Evaluator

From breaking down your favorite fast food meals by calories, to telling you that you need to burn more calories than you eat, I have been heavily focusing on calories lately. I've even suggested that you make a food diary so you can keep track of your calories, but why?

Calories are an easy way to gauge how to maintain, gain or lose weight. Basically the way it works is that there is a mathematical formula that you can use to figure out your Basal Metabolic Rate (MBR), which is the daily amount of calories you would burn if you stayed in bed all day. Then you multiply your BMR by another number depending on how much exercise you do.

It's all pretty complicated so that is why FitSugar has created SugarStats' Calorie Evaluator, which is an easy way to evaluate how many calories you need to maintain, gain or lose weight.

That's not all! With the new SugarStats you can also find your Target Heart Rate, see if you're drinking enough water and find out your Body Mass Index.

Cool calculator! I thought it was funny that the default was "male." I am very happy to know that I don't need to lose as much weight as I thought I did- hooray!

I love that you guys are getting all these cool new tools! Do you really have to set the default to 125, though? :(
