    Calories are units of energy. Your basal metabolic rate is the energy -- measured in calories -- that your body needs daily for your cells to function properly and to stay alive. It's what you burn without exerting any effort. Most women need a daily average of 1,500 to 1,800 calories. Of course, this depends on activity levels, body size, and body type.
