What is BMR?

Your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) represents amount of energy your body needs to keep functioning as if you stayed in bed all day.

BMR decreases with age and with the loss of lean body mass. Increasing muscle mass increases BMR.

BMR is used in Matthews Calorie Counter to help generate your Daily Calorie Intake, Total Daily Energy Expenditure and many other calculations to obtain an efficient weight loss.



How to Calculate BMR?

Step 1. Convert your Height and Weight into CM and Kilos.

Step 2. Using this BMR formula, calculate your BMR:

Males: 66 + ( 13.75 * Weight ) + ( 5 * Height) - ( 6.76 x Age )
Females: 655 + ( 9.6 * Weight ) + ( 1.8 * Height ) - ( 4.7 x Age )

*For a standard version, please see our Standard BMR Calculator
