Additional information will be displayed here once you calculate your BMR

BMR = 1766 Kcal/day

RMR value represents on average 50% to 75% of a person's daily energy expenditure.

Your BMR slows down at roughly 2% every 10 years after the age of 20. This is why many people gain weight as they get older, while maintaining the same caloric intake.

BMR calculator does not take into account body composition, which is a measure of the percentages of muscle and fat composing your body. It is therefore less accurate if you have a non-typical amount of muscle (body-builders) or are an athletic person. This is because muscle burns calories, while fat does not.

## Basal Metabolic Rate Formulas

The most commonly used estimation formulas in BMR calculations are:

• The Original Harris-Benedict Equation
• Men BMR = 66.4730 + (13.7516 x weight in kg) + (5.0033 x height in cm) – (6.7550 x age in years)
• Women BMR = 655.0955 + (9.5634 x weight in kg) + (1.8496 x height in cm) – (4.6756 x age in years)
• The Revised Harris-Benedict Equation
• Men BMR = 88.362 + (13.397 x weight in kg) + (4.799 x height in cm) - (5.677 x age in years)
• Women BMR = 447.593 + (9.247 x weight in kg) + (3.098 x height in cm) - (4.330 x age in years)
• The Mifflin St Jeor Equation
• Men BMR = (10 x weight in kg) + (6.25 x height in cm) - (5 x age in years) + 5 (measured in Kcal/day)
• Women BMR = (10 x weight in kg) + (6.25 x height in cm) - (5 x age in years) - 161 (measured in Kcal/day)
• The Katch-McArdle Formula (Resting Daily Energy Expenditure)
• BMR = 370 + (21.6 x LBM) - LBM = lean body mass in Kg
• The Cunningham Formula (RMR)
• BMR = 500 + (22 x LBM) - LBM = lean body mass in Kg

## 7 facts you should know about BMR

1. Resting metabolic rate slows down as the age increases and weight decreases.
2. Genes and environmental temperature have a significant role in metabolic rate changes.
3. Muscle mass gains increase the metabolic rate.
4. BMR is usually higher in men when compared to women.
5. When you are ill or sick, your RMR (resting metabolic rate) increases in order to be able to fight the infection.
6. Dietary driven deficiencies (poor iodine levels) diminish the metabolic rate.
7. Physical activities increase the metabolic rate.
