Calorie Counter
Counting calories is so important in your weight loss journey as it creates a clear picture of where you are at, and what you need to do to lose weight.  For instance, to lose 0.5kg a week you need to burn 500 calories a day more than you eat. However the only way to then make sure of this is to know how many calories you are burning, and how many calories you eat. 

Firstly you need to know how many calories your body burns naturally, known as your basal metabolic rate (BMR).  This is the energy required for your basic body functions and includes beating of the heart, breathing, and the maintenance of body temperature. It is a function of your age, weight, height, gender and exercise habits.  Take our diet profile to work out your BMR.
