RESTING AND ACTIVE BMR TOOLS

YOUR BODY HAS AN AMAZING CALORIE BURNING ENGINE...it's called your Basal Metabolic Rate.Your "Resting BMR" is the minimum number of calories needed to power your body while resting. Or to put it another way, your BMR is the energy expended by your body to sustain normal functions, like your heartbeat, normal body temperature and respiration and keep you alive. Your BMR typically peaks around age 21 and falls by about 2 percent per decade, due mostly to a loss of muscle tissue, or "lean muscle mass," as you age.The variables used to calculate your "Resting BMR" are Gender, Age, Height and Weight. Unless you're in a hospital or lead a totally sedentary life a more useful number is your Active BMR which is your resting BMR plus your Lifestyle. Your Lifestyle includes all the activities you do to live your life day to day. We encourage you to estimate your Lifestyle as accurately as you can in determining your Active BMR. We exclude Exercise Activity from these calculations because it often varies too much to be an accurate measure of how many calories you need to maintain your existing weight. Use our Metabolic Weight Control Tool to include Exercise and to set your Weight Loss goals...

Note how the number of calories decline as you age under the Cal column and the numbers are green. The next column is weight, note how it remains the same if you adjust consumption to match your declining BMR. In the next section note what happens if you don't adjust consumption you age. The number of pounds gained per year are red. Experiment with different Lifestyles to observe change.

Use the Virtual Scale to monitor your Weight day to day based upon how many calories you actually consume. Visit Body Composition to see other factors.

The factor most people miss is what happens to their BMR as they Age. If you consume the same number of calories and maintain the same activity level at age 30 as you had at age 20 you will gain weight...the reason is the loss of "Lean Muscle Mass."

You must either reduce caloric consumption or increase activity as you age just to maintain your weight. If you want to lose weight do more, but weight gain is automatic as you age if you don't adjust. The best solution is to include activities that increase Lean Muscle Mass!
