What is Basal Metabolic Rate - BMR?

Your BMR, or basal metabolic rate (metabolism), is the energy expended by the body at rest to maintain normal bodily functions like (breathing). To determine the optimal energy consumption for your body, you can use Basal Metabolic Rate BMR Calculator . BAsal Metabolic Rate is measured in calories. BMR is the amount of calories burn just to stay alive. You would still burn this amount even if you slept 24 hours a day. Any extra activity like (walking, dressing, sport, working, etc.) increasing the amount of energy expense more than 20%. BMR decreases with age and with the loss of lean body mass. Increasing muscle mass increases BMR. This calculation is also not accurate for musculate and obese people. In that case results are only informative.BMR calculator
