The Effect Of Excess Calories?
hello doctor, I just drank an energetic (go-well) whose total energy is 120 kcal and energy from fat 25kcal, am I too excessive in consuming calories when I only drink one glass?
Hello, Siti Fauzia Karina. Thank you for the questions submitted to HealthReplies.com We can understand the concern you feel.
The daily caloric needs of each individual are influenced by several factors, namely gender, weight, height, age, physical activity, and health conditions (for example being experiencing metabolic stress due to infection, postoperative trauma, etc.).
Before calculating basal calorie requirements, the ideal body weight needs to be determined first. How to calculate it is by using the formula 90% x [(height in cm) - 100) x 1 kg. The men's basal calorie requirement is 30 kcal per kgBB ideal, while the women's basal calorie requirement is 25 kcal / kgBB ideal.
The following is an illustration of calculating basal calorie requirements: A woman's height is 160 cm, so if it is calculated using the formula mentioned, the ideal body weight is 54 kg. Women's basal calorie needs are 54 kg x 25 kcal / kgBB ideal, which is 1,350 kcal / day or around 1,400 kcal / day. It should be understood that this is just a basal / basic calorie requirement. To find out the actual calorie needs in an individual, other factors as mentioned have to be taken into account.
We recommend that you consult directly with your doctor or clinical nutrition specialist doctor to obtain a more accurate clinical assessment and an appropriate diet plan. Because we have not been able to determine your daily calorie needs, unfortunately we cannot confirm whether the consumption of these products is in accordance with your daily calorie needs. However, if indeed the product information says that one portion of the product produces 120 kcal of total energy, of course this figure is still far from the calorie needs of a person who is generally around 2,000 kcal / day.
As a recommendation at home, you can eat a balanced nutritious diet, drink enough water, exercise regularly, and get enough rest. Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
