Calculating our Daily Calorie Requirements
Our calorie needs - meaning the number of daily calories we require to maintain our weight - depend on a number of factors.
Our age, gender, weight, height and exercise routine are the main variables in assessing calorie-needs.
But body composition is important, too. Because lean tissue (muscle) is more metabolically active than fat, the higher our body fat percentage, the fewer calories we require.

Benefits of Regular Exercise
Daily physical activity, especially fitness workouts performed on specific exercise equipment, builds muscles, burns extra calories, loses weight and body fat tissue. In addition to reducing weight, and burning body fat, regular physical workouts raise metabolic rate and help to tone the stomach.
