Calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)

The Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) calculator below allows you to calculate the number of calories your body burns, before physical activity, on a daily basis. Basal metabolic rate measures the calories needed to perform your body’s most basic (basal) functions, like breathing, circulation, and cell production. BMR accounts for about 60-75% of your total daily calorie expenditure.

While it may sound like just another scientific term, your BMR holds the key to unlocking the secret behind your body’s metabolic power. Why is understanding your BMR so important? Well, it forms the foundation for determining your daily caloric needs and serves as a valuable tool for weight management. By comprehending your BMR, you can tailor your dietary and fitness strategies to match your body’s unique requirements, helping you reach your desired goals more effectively.

Our BMR calculator helps you calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), food, macros and calories – you just need to follow it. We can help you track your macros, calories as well as your water intake in The Healthy Mummy app.
