Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the number of calories required to keep your body functioning at rest. BMR is also known as your body’s resting metabolism; therefore, any increase to you body weight will usually also increase your overall BMR. To get your BMR, simply input your height, gender, age and weight in the calculator provided on this page. Once we have determined your BMR, we can begin to accurately calculate how many calories per day you need to consume in order to maintain, gain or lose weight.
Every nutritional programme I design relies heavily on these initial figures.
