Explanation:

Gender - male

Height - 5 feet 10 inches (1.778m)

Weight - 155 pounds (70.307kg)

Age - 19

Session - 60 minutes / session atleast 5days a week (Active Physical Activity(PA) bracket)

Active PA factor = 1.27

Estimated Energy Requirement (kcal/day) =

Total Energy Expenditure + Energy Deposition

Adults 19 years and older - Men

EER = 662 - (9.53 x age [y]) + PA x { (15.91 x weight [kg]) + (539.6 x height [m]) }

EER = 662 - (9.53 × 19) + PA × {(15.91 × 70.307) + (539.6 × 1.778)}

EER = 662 - 181.07 + PA × { 1118.584 + 959.4088}

EER = 480.93 + PA × (2077.9928)

EER = 480.93 + 1.27(2077.9928)

EER = 480.93 + 2639.050856

EER = 3119.9808

Explanation:

Age = 19yrs

Height = 5 feet 10 inches tall = 5.833 feet = 1.78m

Weight = 155 pounds = (155/2.2)kg = 70.45kg

The desired BMI(body mass index) is 18.5 to 24.9 (128.7pounds to 173.4 pounds).

Since his weight is 155 pounds, it falls under the desired BMI.

EER for Adults 19 years and older - Men

EER = 661.8 - (9.53 x age [years]) + PAL x { (15.91 x weight [kg]) + (539.6 x height [m]) }, where PAL = 1 if sedentary, 1.11 if low active, 1.25 if active, and 1.48 if very active.

PAL = physical activity level

EER = Estimated Energy Requirements

His does interval training for 60 minutes per session at least 5 days a week that means he is active. PAL = 1.25

EER = 661.8 - (9.53 × 19) + 1.25×[(15.91 × 70.45) + (539.6×1.78)]

= 661.8 − 9.53(19) + 1.25((15.91×70.45)+(539.6×1.78))

= 3082.414375

EER = 3082kcal/day

Hence, his EER is about 3100 kcal/day.
