How Many Calories Should I Eat?
(BMR) Basal Metabolic Rate – BMR is the absolute minimum number of calories your body requires on a daily basis to perform basic bodily functions efficiently (i.e. pump your heart, breathe, blink, etc.). Your overall food consumption should NEVER fall below your BMR.
Men: BMR = 655 + (4.35 x weight in pounds) + (4.7 x height in inches) – (4.7 x age)
Women: BMR = 66 + (6.23 x weight in pounds) + (12.7 x height in inches) – (6.8 x age)
Ex. Male, 180lbs, 5’ 10”, 26 years old
BMR = 655 + (4.35 x 180lbs) + (4.7 x 70inches) – (4.7 x 26years)
BMR = 655 + (783) + (329) – (122.2)
BMR = 1,645 calories
