TABLE B-1BEquations to Calculate Estimated Energy Requirement (EER) for Nonpregnant Adolescents or Adult Women

1418 years of Age
Estimated Energy Requirement (kcal/day) = Total Energy Expenditure + Energy Deposition
EER = 135.3 − (30.8 × age [y]) + PA × [(10.0 × weight [kg]) + (934 × height [m])] + 25
19 Years and Older
Estimated Energy Requirement (kcal/day) = Total Energy Expenditure
EER = 354 − (6.91 × age [y]) + PA × [(9.36 × weight [kg]) + (726 v height [m])]

NOTE: PA = Physical Activity Coefficient. Use equations in Table B-1C to calculate PA.
