Science behind the calories

BMR, or basal metabolic rate is one of the most widely used parameters for finding out the preferred calorie ratio. For our calculator plugin, we use the Mifflin – St. Jeor formula. It identifies BMR by analyzing the essential features of your organism: body mass, height, age and biological gender. Each of those numbers is multiplied by a special index, and, as a result, the daily calorie consumption rate is calculated. Sports and other types of activity are also taken into account: this way the users can be sure that the calorie norm offered by WordPress Calorie Calculator corresponds with their individual physical characteristics such as weight, height and others.

How it works

WordPress Calorie Calculator gives you the shortcode that you can place into the page, post or sidebar widget. Put it anywhere it suits most to catch the most attention of the online visitors.

Having the plugin installed, you get a neatly designed WordPress page with a few input fields for age, body mass, and height numbers, gender selection and measure units toggle. It is followed by a selection of lifestyles where you tick the one that best describes the amount of sports in your life. Drop down menu on the bottom provides options of possible body mass goals: weight maintenance, loss or gain (and the speed of the process).

This built-in calculator will without a doubt be a most-liked feature on your website – people will hardly manage to resist the urge to check out their daily calorie norm set up in accordance with their body mass goals.

It runs as you go: if you select an instant view, WordPress Calorie Calculator demonstrates the results straight after everything is typed. No need to click on any additional buttons – our calculator plugin is made as user-friendly as possible.

The equation is solved once the parameters are put in the boxes. Calorie Calculator works with both metric and imperial units to the convenience of users from all over the world. Switching from one system or another on the way is also not a problem – the plugin does it automatically.
