Where does this calculator come from?  It comes from average results of a variety of people.  It is not an exact science so make sure you keep a journal or record of some kind.  A good journal should be there to remind you of your goal and what you need to do.  I use weight loss journals, because I tend to gain weight and need to be reminded to go on a diet as soon as possible.  Most people need to lose weight periodically and that is why the charts and journals on this site are labeled as weight loss journals and weight loss charts... ,but you should find these charts and journals useful even if you need to gain weight.  Just remember that it is not just weight that is important. the quality of that weight is also important, so you may also want to keep up with your percent fat.

Even though this book of mine is about how to lose weight with calories, it will still be useful to those that want to maintain their weight. The easy weight loss journal will be particularly useful to remind you immediately when you need to gain weight or lose weight.
