Calorie Needs: Men need more calories than women. In general, men have an overall larger body in both height and weight and greater muscle mass than women, they also have increased caloric needs compared to women.

The average-sized, moderately physically active 30 year old female needs about 2000 calories per day while her male counterpart needs about 2800 calories. Even if they were the same height and weight, the Dietary Reference Intakes approximate that the man burns about 400 calories more per day than the woman.

Although the recommended breakdown of carbohydrate, protein, and fat are the same for both genders, because men generally need more calories, they also require higher total intake of each of the macronutrients.

Women need fewer calories than men, but due to factors such as hormonal changes, women have higher vitamin and mineral needs. Adequate intake of calcium, iron, and folic acid are of special importance for women.
