How many calories do you burn at rest with no exercise or activity?
This BMR calculator will calculate your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate). This is the calories you burn at rest with no activity, exercise or digestion.
The calculator will then calculate an estimate of the calories you burn a day by adjusting your BMR by a factor dependent on your exercise leve (low activity, moderate activity, very high activity, ...).
As well as calculating your calories, the calculator includes information on how many calories you should eat to lose weight, what BMR is and how it performs its calculations.
* Calculate you BMR by inputing your weight, height, gender and age.
* Calculate the calories you burn a day by adjusting your BMR by your activity level.
* The calculator will calculate your BMR from two different formulas, the equation of MD Miffin and St Joer or the Harris-Benedict equation. These are the two most common equations used for calculating Basal Metabolic Rate.
* Results are presented in both Calories and Kilojoules.
* All inputs are in metric and US measurements (i.e. Cms, Feet, Inches, Kg, Lbs).
* Read information on how many calories you should eat a day to either maintain your weight or lose weight.

Dissociated diet is based on the idea not mixing certain food groups (differentiated food table) , since most ingested become fat together than separately. It results in a decrease in calorie intake and a more logical distribution of nutrients, depending on the energy needs of our body throughout the day. This allows us to reach our ideal weight without hunger and heavy digestion…
If you've noticed that every year, it becomes harder to eat whatever you want and stay slim, you've also learnt that your BMR decreases as you age. Likewise, depriving yourself of food in hopes of losing weight also decreases your BMR, a foil to your intentions. However, a regular routine of cardiovascular exercise can increase your BMR, improving your health and fitness when your body's ability to burn energy gradually slows down.
Once you know your BMR, you can calculate your Daily Calorie Needs based on your activity level using the Harris Benedict Equation.
The Harris Benedict Equation is a formula that uses your BMR and then applies an activity factor to determine your total daily energy expenditure (calories). The only factor omitted by the Harris Benedict Equation is lean body mass. Remember, leaner bodies need more calories than less leaner ones. Therefore, this equation will be very accurate in all but the very muscular (will under-estimate calorie needs) and the very fat (will over-estimate calorie needs).
Harris Benedict Formula
To determine your total daily calorie needs, multiply your BMR by the appropriate activity factor, as follows:
If you are sedentary (little or no exercise) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.2
If you are lightly active (light exercise/sports 1-3 days/week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.375
If you are moderatetely active (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.55
If you are very active (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days a week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.725
If you are extra active (very hard exercise/sports & physical job or 2x training) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.9
Total Calorie Needs Example
If you are sedentary, multiply your BMR (1745) by 1.2 = 2094. This is the total number of calories you need in order to maintain your current weight.
Once you know the number of calories needed to maintain your weight, you can easily calculate the number of calories you need to eat in order to gain or lose weight:
Calorie Needs to gain weight
Once you know the number of calories you need to maintain your weight (using our BMR Calculator in conjunction with our Harris Benedict Equation, you can easily calculate the number of calories you need in order to gain weight.
If you want to gain body weight, you need to consume more calories than you burn. One pound of body weight is roughly equivalent to 3500 calories, so eating an extra 500 calories per day will cause you to gain one pound a week.
For optimum health, if you increase your calories to gain weight then (health permitting) gradually increase your level of physical exercise in order to maintain or increase your lean body mass. The benefits of exercise on physical and mental health are well documented and shouldn't be ignored.
Calorie Needs to lose weight
There are approximately 3500 calories in a pound of stored body fat. So, if you create a 3500-calorie deficit through diet, exercise or a combination of both, you will lose one pound of body weight. (On average 75% of this is fat, 25% lean tissue) If you create a 7000 calorie deficit you will lose two pounds and so on. The calorie deficit can be achieved either by calorie-restriction alone, or by a combination of fewer calories in (diet) and more calories out (exercise). This combination of diet and exercise is best for lasting weight loss. Indeed, sustained weight loss is difficult or impossible without increased regular exercise.
An alternative way of calculating a safe minimum calorie-intake level is by reference to your body weight or current body weight. Reducing calories by 15-20% below your daily calorie maintenance needs is a useful start. You may increase this depending on your weight loss goals.
mySTEPS counts your daily steps and lets you know you have reached your goal or not. You will be notified when you will reach to your daily goal.
It also counts your recommended daily calorie requirement to maintain current body weight as per Harris-Benedict equation.
