    There ya go. You're probably towards the higher range of that. Plug that into an app like MyFitnessPal and track your food. You may be surprise how much you undereat.

    I put no faith in BMI calculators. I am 43 years old, 5'8" and 205 lbs and I come up as 31.17 (Obese); I am far from obese. These things cannot take into consideration muscle mass and I have yet to find a good calculator that can represent this. The calorie thing is neat though. I used to track my calories religiously but that just gets too boring really fast. I already know I don't eat enough calories and that I am limiting my growth however when I do eat the required calories and eat the right foods I tend to gain unwanted weight. I could never find a balance.

    Good luck to you juiceit. (don't like the name, to me it implies you are using PEDs)

    Body Mass Index was never designed to be applied on an individual scale - it was designed for population studies where differences between individual builds are averaged out. It provides a rough rule of thumb for sedentary individuals but for anyone who does regular exercise it's pretty much meaningless.

    Also, the taller you are, the more likely BMI is to report you as being overweight (and if you're shorter than average, underweight) as it is the ratio of weight to the square of height which is disproportionate to reality (expects tall people to be very skinny and short people to be the opposite).

    Hi Deviation

    Your calculator seems to have a couple of issues - if I put the units in centimetres/kilograms the BMI calculation is way out. It seems it selects the imperial units anyway - looks like this is because your metric radio buttons have a different name to your imperial ones.

    Why is the number of calories reported in green lower than any of the values in the table?

    Also BMI is technically not a percentage (it is a value in kg/m^2 if you want to be picky :-) but normally reported without a unit)

    Actually haven't tested most of it to be honest. It was just a "fun" project i started a while back. I'll take a look at that.

    That's your BMR. The absolute lowest number of calories required if you just laid in bed and didn't move.

    Also BMI is technically not a percentage (it is a value in kg/m^2 if you want to be picky :-) but normally reported without a unit)
    Yeah you're right. I'm not sure why I added a % sign?

    Guess I have some tweaking to do.
