Our food calorie counter app lets you keep top of your diet by easily working out your daily consumption.Tell us what you’re planning to eat, and how much, and we’ll tell you how many calories that food will contain.
Send us a message if a food is missing.
Good question! To put it simply, making sure you’re eating a sensible number of calories is an important part of a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Excess calories can lead to weight gain, while not eating enough can result in malnutrition, and further health issues.
Making sure you’re across your calorie consumption means you can make sensible, educated decisions about your diet, helping you to better manage your overall health.

Our food calorie calculator is a cut above thanks to its easy-to-use interface, and precise measurement.
It enables you to examine a really wide range of foods, and exactly how much you’re eating, to obtain accurate calorie information.
Plus, our tool also features an option to sort meals by breakfast, lunch, and dinner, giving you greater control over your information and choices.
It also works perfectly across all sort of different devices. You can look after your health on the go, without having to download any apps.
To put it simply, calories are how we measure the energy we consume in our food and drink.
You’ve probably heard people talk about carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Scientists call these ‘macronutrients’, and they’re where we get our calories from.
Just like plugging in the television, or putting petrol in your car, our bodies need fuel to carry out everyday functions. Getting up and moving around, and even very basic activities such as breathing, requires energy. That’s where calories come in.
Because we’re all different, and we all do very different amounts of activity, our calorie requirements are different too:
For example, some athletes will need thousands of calories in a single meal, but that’s because they are using up enormous amounts of energy through physical activity.
Equally, people who are less active than the average person might require a bit less fuel.
We all know that eating more calories than our bodies are using up increases our chances are we’ll put on weight. It can even lead to very serious health issues such as obesity, and type 2 diabetes.
The good news is that you can safely lose weight by reducing the number of calories you’re eating, and the even better news is that making these sorts of changes to your diet and lifestyle doesn’t have to be all that difficult.
Small changes can lead to impressive results, and our calorie counter can help you avoid high-calorie and low-nutrient foods, and replace them with low calorie, healthy alternatives; promoting safe, sensible weight loss.
Calories are measured in kcal (kilocalories), and the amount you should consume to lose weight can depend on a whole host of factors:
Your age, sex, weight, height, and physical activity level can all influence how many calories your body will burn on a daily basis.
Typically, eating 500-1000 fewer kcal per day is a sensible approach if you want to lose weight safely and sustainably. For most of us, that will result in around 1-2 pounds of weight loss a week.
Technically speaking, there isn’t really a best food for weight loss, because losing weight happens as a result of eating fewer calories than your body is using up.
In some ways, you could say that eating 1,000 kcal of ice cream is the same as eating 1,000 kcal of fruit and veg, although one of those choices would be significantly better for your overall health than the other!
In general, foods rich in fiber, protein, and water can help you feel more full, which makes it easier to stick to a calorie controlled diet.
Examples of these foods include fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and legumes.
Foods with low calorie density, like leafy greens, non-starchy vegetables, and broth-based soups can also help with feeling more satisfied, while helping you to consume fewer calories.
Very simply, the key to long-term weight loss and overall health is a balanced and diverse diet, with lots of nutrient dense whole foods.
With aging, our metabolism, (the process that governs how our bodies process energy from food), tends to slow down.
As a result, older people often require fewer calories: When the body's energy usage slows down, less fuel is needed to sustain our daily activities.
