How do I find out what my metabolic rate is?




Basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the rate at which your body burns calories while at rest.
To get a general idea of your BMR, multiply your weight by 10. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, your BMR is 1,500. The actual formula looks like:

BMR = 150 x 10 kcal/lb = 1,500 kcals

This formula allows 10 kcals (commonly referred to as calories) for every pound of body weight.

This means that your metabolism can “use up” around 1,500 calories a day. If you take in more than that, you will gain weight.

But remember, this is a rough estimate and doesn’t take into account other contributing factors that may influence your metabolic rate like how much you exercise.

If you’re interested in a truer estimate, a qualified trainer or a registered dietitian can actually take a measurement on a device similar to a calculator that will estimate the number of calories your body burns per minute.
