# Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) calculator

Use this simple Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) calculator provided by Australian Calculators to calculate your BMR. The amount of energy your body needs at rest. The basal metabolic rate calculator enables you to calculate your BMR.

#### Your BMR score is {{result | number :0}}

If you do little or no exercise | your daily calorie requirement would be {{result *1.2 | number :0}} calories ({{result * 1.2 *4.184 | number :0}} kilojoules). |

If you do light exercise or sports 1 to 3 days per week | your daily calorie requirement would be {{result *1.375 | number :0}} calories ({{result * 1.375 *4.184 | number :0}} kilojoules). |

If you do moderate exercise or sports 3 to 5 days per week | your daily calorie requirement would be {{result *1.55 | number :0}} calories ({{result * 1.55 *4.184 | number :0}} kilojoules). |

If you do exercise or sports 6 to 7 days per week | your daily calorie requirement would be {{result *1.725 | number :0}} calories ({{result * 1.725 *4.184 | number :0}} kilojoules). |

If you do sports and a physical job or twice training | your daily calorie requirement would be {{result *1.9 | number :0}} calories ({{result * 1.9 *4.184 | number :0}} kilojoules). |

### What is BMR?

BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate) is the amount of daily calories that you would burn if you are at rest. You can also think of it as the minimum amount of calories that you would burn if you were to do nothing for the entire day. BMR is dependent on four variables: height, weight, gender, and age. Your BMR is higher if you are taller or if you are heavier, and it decreases if you become older. Knowing your BMR gives you a better idea on how your body burns calories and can help you plan your diect accordingly.

This calculator will determine how many calories you burn each day based on your age, sex, height, weight and current level of activity. When selecting your activity level use.

### What is Harrisâ€“Benedict equation?

The Harrisâ€“Benedict equation (also called the Harris-Benedict principle) is a method used to estimate an individual's basal metabolic rate (BMR). The estimated BMR value may be multiplied by a number that corresponds to the individual's activity level and the resulting number is the approximate daily kilocalorie intake.
