# BMR Calculator - Calculate Your Basal Metabolic Rate

This calulcator estimate your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR).

BMR is a minimum number of calories body needs for its most basic (basal) functions while at rest.

### Your BMR: 1,717 Calories/day

Activity | Calories |
---|---|

Little or no exercise | 2,060 |

Lightly active (1-3 days/week) | 2,361 |

Moderately active (3-5 days/week) | 2,661 |

Very active (6-7 days/week) | 2,962 |

Extra active (very intense exercise, physical job) | 3,262 |

### How to calculate your BMR?

This calculator uses the Mifflin-St Jeor equation, which is considered to be the most accurate BMR calculator for most types of people.

**For men:**

BMR = (10 × weight in kg) + (6.25 × height in cm) - (5 × age in years) + 5

**For women:**

BMR = (10 × weight in kg) + (6.25 × height in cm) - (5 × age in years) - 161

### How to calculate total calorie needs?

Once BMR is calculated, following equation can be used to determine total daily calorie needs.Multiply BMR with the appropriate activity factor, as follows:

Little or no exercise = BMR x 1.2

Lightly active (1-3 days/week) = BMR x 1.375

Moderately active (3-5 days/week) = BMR x 1.55

Very active (6-7 days/week) = BMR x 1.725

Extra active (very intense exercise, physical job) = BMR x 1.9
