What does a BMR calculator do?

This is the most comprehensive BMR calculator available. We built it from scratch so that you can get the most accurate picture possible of your BMR. It works in two stages. The first stage will calculate your basal metabolic rate (BMR) based on the data you have already. If you have had a DEXA scan or Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) test with us here at My Vital Metrics, then that will give you the most accurate results.

After the first stage, you will then be asked a few questions about the nature of your work, the frequency and intensity of your workouts, how long you sleep, and how many steps on average you get per day. This data will be used to calculate your total daily energy needs or TDEE. This number can be used as a starting point for any goals you might have for gaining or losing mass.


What is BMR?

Your BMR — or basal metabolic rate — is the number of calories you burn at rest. This includes the energy you need to maintain basic functions such as breathing and circulating blood round the body. 


What is TDEE?

Your TDEE — or Total Daily Energy Expenditure — is an estimate of the number of calories you use in a given day.

The BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) is the number of calories your body currently consumes just to exist. If you spent 24 hours in bed, not moving, this is what your body would consume.
To work out how many calories we need to actually live. we need to work out the Total Daily Energy Expenditure - and that's the next stage.
First we look at the big things
What kind of work do you do
How Many hours per week?
How Many hours of sleep do you get on average?
How many steps do you get each day on average?

Next we look at your workouts and activity

We have catered below to 2 different types of cardiovascular activities, one type of resistance training and one type of wellness activity such as yoga or pilates or stretching
How you use these categories is up to you to describe your activity - and if you don't do any particular one, just leave the minutes at 0.
One example would be to use the first cardio to describe any low-intensity cardio you do. The second cardio option to put in your short high intensity sprints, and the resistance to put in your weight-training.

Thanks for using the Total Daily Energy Expenditure Calculator - You results are below
We Found that your Basal Metabolic Rate Was
This is the number of calories you use to just exist , For you to breathe , Your brain to function , your heart to pump etc
Taking into account all the activity you entered, we think that your Activity Multiplier is:
This is the number you multiply your metabolic rate by take into account all your activity. This means that your total Daily Energy Expenditure is
This is the number of calories you need to maintain weigth, and support all your daily activity. if you'd like a target calories for your goal,please select your goal from the options below
