How to Calculate the Mifflin-St Jeor Formula
First, convert pounds to kilograms by dividing by 2.2.
Next, convert the inches to centimeters by multiplying by 2.545. For the most part, all moderately active people are generally advised to consume about 1.5 to 1.7 times the calculated resting metabolic rate (RMR).
|The Mifflin-St Jeor Formula|
|Formula for Men||RMR = 9.99 x weight (kg) + 6.25 x height (cm) – 4.92 x age (yrs.) + 5|
|Formula for Women||RMR = 9.99 x weight (kg) + 6.25 x height (cm) – 4.92 x age (yrs.) – 161|
