Your BMI is calculated using your weight and height (your weight divided by your height squared) and gives you an indication of your body size.
The two often get confused but are both important for reaching your weight loss goals!
The Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) 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.
