BMR is how many calories your body burns in a day at rest

There are 4 FACTORS that go into calculating your BMR

To calculate a Woman’s BMR you can use this formula: BMR = 655 + (4.35 x weight in pounds) + (4.7 x height in inches) – (4.7 x age in years)

And to calculate a man’s BMR you can use this formula which is slightly different : BMR = 66 + (6.23 x weight in pounds) + (12.7 x height in inches) – (6.8 x age in year)

Activity level:
Sedentary – 1.2
Lightly active – 1.375 (exercise 1-3days)
Moderately active – 1.55 (exercise 3-5days)
Very active -1.75 (exercise 6-7days)
Extremely active – 1.9

Take BMR X activity level = calories needed to maintain current weight

It takes about 3500 calories to lose a pound

3500 x pounds need to lose = total cal need to burn/ save

Total cal need to burn/ save ÷ by weeks to burn by = cal per week

Cal per week ÷ 7 days = cal need to save/ or burn per week to lose weight

(To save cal – eat less / Burn cal – exercise)

Take your cal needed each day – cal needed per day to lose weight = cal needed per day to lose weight (rough estimate/ average)

Liezl Jayne Strydom : HOW TO LOSE WEIGHT FAST & SEE RESULTS WITH CALORIES?! Does it work? Weight loss hacks!

how to lose weight



  1. Thank you so much. I’m out of bed and you got me motivated to eat right with your forever awesome meals. I’ve tried many of your meals and they all taste great so far! Thank you ! Finished my workout ready to start my day xx. Have a great day !

  2. Is 1,600 calories good for me if I’m 5’4.5 and weigh around 100 pounds? I’m recovering from an eating disorder, and I’m having a hard time figuring out how many calories I need. I workout around 2-5 times a week; those workouts are fairly light. I’m also 16! Would love any and all advice! Xx

  3. Liezl, can you do an example use kg's and cm's as it gets confusing having to convert it from pounds and inches. Also you didn't specify if we should convert the height in inches to cm's or meters. I am 1.53m…do I use 1.53 in my calc or 153? 1 pound is roughly 2 kg's, so the 3500 cals to burn to lose 1 pound actually means that it takes 1750 cals to burn 1 kg, am I right?

  4. This is the first time that I have found a video of yours to be confusing, and it's not because of the math. In all of the rest of your videos and information on your blog, you imply that it's not just the calories or the points in your system that made a difference for you, but it is what you eat – no processed foods, lots of fruit and vegetables, lean protein, etc. – and also how you exercise – hiit workouts rather than long cardio sessions, focus on building muscle to increase metabolism, etc. Up until now, I was thinking that you had really hit on a formula that does more than take calorie calculations into consideration. I wish you would have said that the BMR is a beginning for figuring out how much to eat, but that other factors, such as what you eat and how you exercise can be more important. This video feels like you are reciting something from a nutrition textbook and not providing your own experience, which is why I think we usually find your message so real and captivating. I usually love everything you do, so I am sorry to be so critical this time. <3

  5. I have a question just to be sure I got it 🤔
    In your example you said she needs to eat 1543,7 cal per day to maintain her weight without doing any exercise.*
    But at the end to calculate how many cal per day she should eat to lose 16 lbs in 12 weeks you used 2122,58 cal (lightly active) in the formular.
    So if we wanted to calculate how many calories she should eat daily to lose 16 lbs in 12 weeks without doing any exercise the formular would be:
    1543,7 cal (daily cal to maintain without doing any exercise) – 625 cal (cal to lose weight) = 909,7 cal ?
    This seems not really healthy. As you said at least 1.100 cal would be the safest.
    So theres no healthy way for girls to lose weight without any exercise who are 160 lbs 65 inches and 24 y/o? Or did I calculate it wrong?🤔
    *(I was also confused that you said to x 1.2 if you dont do any exercise to calculate how many cal you should eat per day to maintain the weight but in the example you didnt do x 1.2 🤯 Why?)
