What is Basic Metabolic Rate?

Even when a human body is at rest, it is continuously performing life sustaining activities like breathing, food digestion, organ functions, blood circulation, and cell production, and all these activities require calories (kilojoules). BMR helps you to get the estimate of the calories which are required by your body even while at rest.

  • BMR refers to the minimum number of calories required to live.
  • Basic/Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is calculated using your age, height and weight.
  • BMR is the key to effective weight management.
