How Many Calories Do Diabetics Required?

Patients with diabetes calorie needs depend on weight, height, Physical activity level, gender, age and your plans (such as lose weight).

Calculating daily calories required
For patients with diabetes, the control diets are conducive to the control of blood sugar. Control of diet does not mean hunger therapy, but requires a reasonable management of the type and quantity of diets, so that the normal physical strength and labor ability can be guaranteed, and control of the disease can be controlled to the largest degree among diabetic patients. Therefore, each diabetes patient should calculate his total calorie needs that suit them.

Use an online diabetic calorie calculator:

Weight:

Height: or cms

Physical Activity Level:
such as rest in bed.
light manual labor
moderate manual labor work
heavy manual labor work

Your BMI is: ?
This means you are
Your Daily Caloric Intake: 0 calories per day

Nutrition ratio

Carbohydrate: 4 cals/g
Protein: 4 cals/g
Fat: 9 cals/g

If you want to loseweight: 0 calories per day

How Does This Work?

Calculate BMI (Body Mass Index)
BMI is defined as a person's weight divided by the square of his height:

We divide the BMI into three cases:

Examples : Mr Green is 5 feet 10 inches (70 inches; 178 cm) tall, weighs 200 lbs (90 kg)
BMI= (200 lbs / (70 inches* 70 inches))*703
BMI=28.7 he is overweight.

You can also use an online BMI calculator.

Determine Physical Activity Level:
The activity intensity of humans is generally divided into four classes:

Table1: Daily calories required per lbs of body weight per day

Daily calories required per lbs of body weight per day

Table2: Daily calories required per kilogram of body weight per day

Daily calories required per kilogram of body weight per day

Notes: Column Overweight: Include overweight or obesity.

Calories required = your weigh * daily calories required per lbs of body weight

Example: Mr Green is 5 feet 10 inches (178 cm) tall and 65 years old, and weighs 200 lbs (90 kg) this year. He is usually engaged in Light Active (light manual labor work), and the calories he needs every day:

Determining his level of weight: his actual weight is 200 lbs and BMI 28.7, and therefore, he is overweight.

Determining his activity intensity: Light Active.

Searching the daily energy level required: Since he is obese and engaged in light physical labor, the energy he needs per kilogram of body weight per day is 9 ~ 11 calories according to the table1

Calories required = Your weight * daily calories required per lbs of body weight
Calories required = 200 * 9 ~ 11 = 1800 to 2200 calories per day.
