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.
