## BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate)

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the measurement of the energy consumed by the human body in rest to perform its basic functions like breathing, blood circulation, etc...

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) has several calculation formulas. The popular ones are The Mifflin St Jeor Equation and the The Revised Harris-Benedict Equation.

### The Mifflin St Jeor Equation

- P = Total energy consumed at rest in kcal per day.
- s = A constant. Substitute +5 for men and -161 for women.
- m = Mass in kilogram (kg).
- h = Height in centimeters (cm).
- a = Age in years.

### The Revised Harris-Benedict Equation

The Revised Harris-Benedict Equation has 2 formulas, one for women and another for men.

#### Formula For Men

- P = Total energy consumed at rest in kcal per day.
- m = Mass in kilogram (kg).
- h = Height in centimeters (cm).
- a = Age in years.

#### Formula For Women

- P = Total energy consumed at rest in kcal per day.
- m = Mass in kilogram (kg).
- h = Height in centimeters (cm).
- a = Age in years.
