Count occurences of days which has a summed total below a certain value

Hi Community,

A question for a personal dashboard I have. I am counting calories (yeah, I know) and I got this source calories4 with multiple entries per date. The uniqueness in this source is the piece of food I ate with the number of calories it holds.

For example the month May, in the source this month got 214 entries, which represent the food I ate during the 31 days May knows.

In PowerBI the source is represented as a sum of calories per date.

Today I am trying to visualize the number of days on which I ate less than 2500 calories. The month May has 7 of this kind of days and as I think I need to distinct count the dates which will be 31 in my example and then filter on those which has a sum of less than 2500 but for some reason I can't get this done:

``NumOfGreenDays = CALCULATE( DISTINCTCOUNT( calories4[Datum] ), FILTER( calories4, calories4[Calorien] <= 2500 ))``

Where am I making the mistake?

Thanks in advance and kind regards,

``````NumOfGreenDays =
SUMX (
VALUES ( calories4[Datum] ),
INT ( CALCULATE ( SUM ( calories4[Calorien] ) ) <= 2500 )
)``````

Both thanks for replying this quick! The solution Tamerj1 posted works like a charm!  And thanks Some_big, I see the datetime format and that is a bit overkill *grin*

Thanks alot and kind regards,
