Understanding Your Basic Metabolic Rate

Most research these days indicates that calories consumed & calories burned is one part of any weight-control program – whether losing or maintaining a specific weight. In order to do that, we must understand the how much energy (calories) our bodies burn. To do that, we must first understand our BMR.

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 rate, such as exercise, will increase your BMR.

 

To get your BMR, follow this formula:

  1. Body weight _____    x 10  = _____­­

  2. Answer from #1 _____  x activity level _____ = _____

     Activity level:  sedentary = .3 - .4

                     Moderately active = .4 - .5

                     Very active = .7 - .8

  3. Add answers from #’s 1 & 2 _____ =  calories used daily  

As an example: 120 x 10 = 1200

                      1200 x .7 = 840

                       1200 + 840 = 2040

 

So a person who weighs 120 pounds and is very active would have to consume 2040 calories daily to maintain their weight & less than 2040 calories to lose any weight.
