Basal Metabolic Rate Calculator | BMR

What the Metabolic Rate Calculator Does: This tool tells you how many calories a day you burn at rest. That figure is your basal metabolic rate, or the amount of your energy your body needs to maintain basic functions such as breathing, digestion, and brain activity.

Why Use the Metabolic Rate Calculator: Weight control is primarily a matter of calories in and calories out. Knowing your basal metabolic rate is part of keeping that energy balance where you want it.


How to Use the Metabolic Rate Calculator: Fill in all of the fields below. You can enter your height in feet and inches, or centimeters, and you can enter your weight in pounds or kilograms. Use the whole number closest to your measurements. For example, if you stand 5 feet, 5.75 inches, enter 5 feet, 6 inches.


After entering all of the variables, hit “calculate.” The resulting figure is the amount of daily calories needed for basic bodily functions for someone of your age, gender, height, and weight.
