Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)
Strictly cutting calories can cause your body to slow its basal metabolic rate
Before you “cut” calories let’s make a plan to increase lean body mass and balance your nutrition to ensure that the essential nutrients are being included in your meal plans.
Enter your age, height, weight, and gender below to determine your BMR.
i.e. 5’11” — (5 x 12) + 11 = 71 inches
Calculate Your BMR
Your BMR score is calories/day.
Activity adjusted BMR gives calorie requirements to maintain current weight.
If weight loss is desired, subtract approximately 500 calories per day to achieve a one pound weight loss per week or increase activity level to burn more calories.
