This week I ran across an interesting formula that calculates the amount of calories a human should eat as a maintenance program. In other words the number of calories needed to provide an adequate nutritional intake. The formula is modified and can be adjusted for age, height and weight of the individual. It is also adjusted for male or female.

Here are the formulas:
For men- BEE=66+ 13.7W+5H-6.8A
For women- BEE= 665 + 9.6 W + 1.7H-4.7A

In each equation, W equals weight in kilograms (kg), H equals height in centimeters (cm) and A equals age.

To make the metric conversions, multiply your height in inches by 2.54 and divide your weight in pounds by 2.2. The BEE calculation is based upon how many calories are needed each day by people who are sedentary. In addition you need to add 100 calories for every 15 to 20 minute light exercise. Add 150 to 200 calories per 15 to 20 minutes of vigorous exercise. Obviously, levels below this base line will function to lose weight and levels above this amount will cause you to gain weight.

I would estimate that there is a similar formula that could apply for dogs and cats as well as humans. ( But I haven’t seen one yet)
