What is the BASAL METABOLIC RATE?
Everybody requires a minimum number of calories to live. This minimum number is called the basal metabolic rate (BMR) and can be influenced by the amount of lean muscle mass a person has. Your BMR is the number of calories your organs need to function while you perform no activity whatsoever.
How is BMI calculated formula?
In most situations, the BMR is estimated with equations summarized from statistical data. The most commonly used one is the Mifflin - St Jeor equation:
BMR = 10 * weight(kg) + 6.25 * height(cm) - 5 * age(y) + 5 (man) BMR = 10 * weight(kg) + 6.25 * height(cm) - 5 * age(y) - 161 (woman)
