Calorie Calculator

BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate):

BMR is the amount of energy expended while at rest in a neutrally temperate environment, in the post-absorptive state (meaning that the digestive system is inactive, which requires about 12 hours of fasting in humans). It represents the minimum amount of energy needed to maintain basic physiological functions such as breathing, circulation, and cell production while the body is at rest.

BMI (Body Mass Index):

BMI is a measure of body fat based on an individual's weight and height. It is commonly used to categorize individuals into different weight status categories, such as underweight, normal weight, overweight, and obesity. The formula for BMI is:

BMI = weight(kg)/height(m)2

How they show the health of a person:

  • BMR: BMR is an indicator of the number of calories your body needs at rest. It can be used to estimate daily calorie needs. If someone consistently consumes more calories than their BMR, they may gain weight, and if they consume fewer calories, they may lose weight. It's an important factor in weight management.

  • BMI: BMI is used as a screening tool to categorize individuals into different weight status categories. However, it doesn't directly assess body fat and doesn't distinguish between muscle and fat. While it's a useful screening tool, it has limitations and should be considered alongside other health assessments.
