What is my resting metabolism (or how many calories would I burn each day even if I didn't move a muscle)?

The minimum calories you burn each day for your body to keep everything functioning (also known as your basal metabolism (BMR) or resting metabolism (RMR)). This calculator uses gender, height, weight, and age to determine your RMR.

Robert   This RMR calculation agrees with a couple of other on the net. In order to figure out how many calories are needed to maintain your weight, a multiple is typically used. 1.2 Sedentary 1.375 Lightly Active 1.55 Moderately 1.725 Very Active days a week 1.9 Extremely Active - 8/24/2010 8:13:16 PM

Steve   This isn't accurate it depends on your body fat percentage too, because muscle burns more calories than fat does. Find a more advanced one, or go to your doctor to find out. - 2/17/2009 3:32:55 PM
