Your Resting Metabolic Rate (also known as Basal Metabolic Rate or BMR) is defined as "the calories burned per day assuming no activity and simply resting". It represents the amount of energy required to keep your body functioning normally assuming you participate in no activities.

Your BMR generally decreases with the loss of lean body mass and with age. However please remember this is an estimate of resting metabolic rate and it is only a guide. It does not consider activity levels, genetics, gender, environmental temperature or your diet. It is based on average statistics for the Basal Metabolic Rate.

To calculate your BMR enter your age, weight and height in the chart below and then click "calculate BMR".
