Calorie counting is not difficult and I will show you how to count your daily caloric intake without any calorie counter:

Calculate your weekly caloric intake and divide it by 7 – this is the calorie count you will take on a day with average calorie intake (2). Let me assume that you have 2250 calories as a result (my example calculations below will be based on that count).

Counting fat grams:

Notice: 1 gram of fat has 9 calories.

Your daily caloric intake from fat must not be more than 20% of the average calorie intake (2):
=> 2250 * 0.20 = 450 calories.

Divide 450 calories by 9 and you will get how many grams of fat you should consume daily:
=> 450 / 9 = 50 grams (1.76 ounces).

Your main food sources of fat will be chicken, veal and fish.

Counting protein grams:

Notice: 1 gram of protein has 4 calories.

Recommended Dietary Allowance of proteins is 0.36 grams per pound of body weight. So if you weight 150 pounds, you should consume 54 grams of proteins:
=> 150 * 0.36 = 54 grams (1.9 ounces).

Multiply 54 grams by 4 and you will get how many calories of proteins you should consume daily:
=> 54 * 4 = 216 calories.

You have to break up your calorie intake into at least 3, better 4 meals a day.

Carbohydrate counting:

Notice: 1 gram of carbohydrates has 4 calories.

Subtract the calorie count of fats (450 calories) and proteins (216 calories) from the average calorie intake (2) (2250 calories):
=> 2250 – (450 + 216) = 1584 calories.

Divide 1584 calories by 4 and you will get how many grams of carbohydrates you should consume daily:
=> 1584 / 4 = 396 grams (13.9 ounces).

You have to break up your calorie intake into at least 3, better 4 meals a day.

Let me summarize what you’ve calculated so far:

Free diet plan in 3 easy steps has three eating patterns:

(1) – low caloric intake
(2) – average calorie intake
(3) – high caloric intake

Average calorie intake (2)

Calorie count you will take on a day with average calorie intake (2) is 2250 calories:
+ 50 grams (1.76 ounces) of fat (450 calories)
+ 54 grams (1.9 ounces) of proteins (216 calories)
+ 396 grams (13.9 ounces) of carbohydrates (1584 calories)

Low caloric intake (1)

The calorie count you will take on a day with low caloric intake (1) is 1778 calories:
+ 50 grams (1.76 ounces) of fat (450 calories)
+ 54 grams (1.9 ounces) of proteins (216 calories)
+ 278 grams (9.77 ounces) of carbohydrates (1112 calories)

!!! Here the calorie count of carbohydrates is lowered by 30% of the calorie count of carbohydrates on a day with (2):
396 * 0.7 = 278 grams
278 * 4 = 1112 calories

High caloric intake (3)

The calorie count you will take on a day with high caloric intake (3) is 2566 calories:
+ 50 grams (1.76 ounces) of fat (450 calories)
+ 54 grams (1.9 ounces) of proteins (216 calories)
+ 475.2 grams (16.69 ounces) of carbohydrates (1900 calories)

!!! Here the calorie count of carbohydrates is lowered by 20% of the calorie count of carbohydrates on a day with (2):
396 * 1.2 = 475.2 grams
475.2 * 4 = 1900 calories

(1*) caloric intake

Fats remain at the same level of 50 grams in all 3 eating patterns – (1), (2) and (3), except for the day with (1*) caloric intake – it is very similar to (1), but fat is increased with 10%:
50 * 1.1 = 55 grams (1.94 ounces)
55 * 9 = 495 calories of fat

The calorie count you will take on a day with (1*) caloric intake is 1823 calories:
+ 55 grams (1.94 ounces) of fat (495 calories)
+ 54 grams (1.9 ounces) of proteins (216 calories)
+ 278 grams (9.77 ounces) of carbohydrates (1112 calories)

Now, you have calculated all the calories you should take.
It’s time to learn how to build your own diet plan.
