Basal Metallic Rate Calculator
Basal metabolic rate or Simple BMR Calculator, is the amount of energy expended while at rest in a neutrally temperate environment. In post-absorptive state (meaning that the digestive system is inactive, which requires about twelve hours of fasting in humans). So, The release of energy in this condition is sufficient only for functioning of the people vital organs, such as the heart, lungs, brain, liver, kidneys, sex organs, muscles and skin. In People BMR is usually influenced by the number of factors, including age, weight, height, gender, environmental temperature, dieting, and exercise habits.
Because of the increased activity of cells undergoing division, the younger person, higher (faster) the metabolism. And the taller and heavier a person is, the faster the metabolism. Because of greater percentage of lean muscle tissue in male body. Men generally have 10-15% faster BMR than women. Moreover when you go on restrictive, traditional diets, your BMR can drop by as much as 20%. People living in tropical or very cold environments generally have BMR’s 5-20% higher than those living in more temperate climates. In general, depending on intensity and duration, consistent exercise can also increase your BMR rapidly. Also TDEE Calculator.
BMR Calculator to Loose Weight
This excel calculator is created using Mifflin – St Jeor equation. With this the equation, the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) can be calculated with the following formula.
– for man (metric) : BMR = 10 * weight(kg) + 6.25 * height(cm) – 5 * age(y) + 5
– for woman (metric) : BMR = 10 * weight(kg) + 6.25 * height(cm) – 5 * age(y) – 161
You can also use this tool to calculate your BMR. Also you can learn how the formula implemented in this excel calculator.
