Basal Metabolic Rate is the number of calories required to keep your body functioning at rest. BMR is also known as your body’s metabolism; therefore, any increase to your metabolic weight, such as exercise, will increase your BMR.
The most commonly used equation for BMR Calculation:
Male BMR = 66 + (13.7 * Weight in KG) + (5 * Height in CM) - (6.8 * Age)
Female BMR = 655 + (9.6 * Weight in KG) + (1.8 * Height in CM) - (4.7 * Age)
Use this BMR Calculator to find out what your BMR can tell you about your health and well-being.
Metabolism comprises the processes that the body needs to function. Basal metabolic rate is the amount of energy expressed in calories that a person needs to keep the body functioning at rest. Some of those processes are breathing, blood circulation, controlling body temperature, cell growth, brain and nerve function, and contraction of muscles. Basal metabolic rate (BMR) affects the rate that a person burns calories and ultimately whether that individual maintains, gains, or loses weight. The basal metabolic rate accounts for about 60 to 75% of the daily calorie expenditure by individuals. It is influenced by several factors. BMR typically declines by 1–2% per decade after age 20, mostly due to loss of fat-free mass, although the variability between individuals is high.
