Resting Metabolic Rate Formula
What is My Resting Metabolic Rate?
Step 1: Multiply your body weight by 10.
Step 2: Determine what your overall exercise level is.
|Very Active||Add 60% - 80% to Your RMR|
|Moderately Active||Add 40% - 60% to Your RMR|
|Generally Sedentary||Add 20% - 40% to Your RMR|
For example, if you weigh 150-pounds and consider yourself to be moderately active, then the following equation would apply to you.
1500 + (1500 x 50%) = 1500 + 750, or 2250 calories.
You can also determine your basal metabolic rate here.
