How to calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate

August 27th, 2009 1 comment

We all burn calories during the day. To figure out how many calories you are using go to http://health.discovery.com/tools/calculators/basal/basal.html

They have a simple calculator to estimate how many calories you burn per day. This is the base. On average you will lose weight if you stay 500 calories below your BMR. For a healthy diet always try to stay above 1200 calories minimum.

So if my basal is 1800 calories, to lose weight i can safely eat 1300 calories per day. With working out and doing cardio i can increase this deficit and make a bigger impact on calories burned.
