BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) Calculator

Your basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the energy used (measured in calories) by your body to perform basic functions, including internal energy expenditure, breathing, and body temperature. It is the number of calories your body would expend if you performed no physical activity throughout the day.

Daily Caloric Intake Calculator

The calorie calculator first determines your basal metabolic rate (BMR) using multiple factors, including height, weight, age and sex. It then multiplies that value by an activity factor that takes into account your daily activities. This produces a value that represents your total daily calorie requirement for maintaining your weight. If you've selected either "Lose Weight" or "Build Muscle" as your goal, the calculator will add or subtract a scientifically determined amount of calories to or from the total.
