  1. About 3100kcal/day

    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

    EER is about 3100kcal/day

  2. about 3100 kcal/day (A)

    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.
