Here’s a list of 5 calorie calculator extensions for Google Chrome which you can use to find out what your daily calorie needs are based on your height, weight, age and activity level. Some of the extensions that I covered also let you know how many calories there are in everyday foods like eggs, soups, hamburgers, French fries, etc. Keeping a close eye on what your daily calorie needs are, and how much calories you’ve consumed is a must if you want to lose, maintain or gain weight. These calculator extensions will give you a ball park figure of what these numbers are and what they should be.
Daily Calorie Calculator
Daily Calorie Calculator is a simple calorie calculator web app which requires you to type in your gender, height, weight, age and level of activity.
Once you’ve done that and clicked on the “Submit” button your daily caloric needs are going to be generated on the right. Simple and to the point.

Daily Calorie Calculator by foodlve gets a bit more into details about the daily caloric intake that’s need for losing weight, maintaining weight and gaining weight.
You can see what I mean on the image above. On top of the basic calculation, you’ll also be given a break down of how much calories for each of the 3 important food groups, carbohydrates, proteins and fats, you need to eat for your diet plans.
