BMR Calculator

Your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the number of calories you’d burn if you stayed in bed all day. Please note that you must never eat below your BMR calories every day otherwise you can send your body into starvation mode.

Your BMR decreases as you age so it becomes harder to stay slim as you get older.

Likewise, depriving yourself of food in hopes of losing weight also decreases your BMR which is a trap many people fall into.

However, a regular routine of cardiovascular exercise, muscle building exercises and metabolism boosting foods can increase your BMR, improving your health and fitness when your body’s ability to burn energy gradually slows down. You can calculate your BMR below.
