The BMR formula in our calculation is based on the The Mifflin St Jeor Equation:
BMR = (10m/1kg + 6.25h/1cm - 5a/1year + s) kcal/day
m = weight
h = height
a = age
s = +5 for males and -161 for females
BMR value can be used for estimating your daily calorie requirement depending on your body weight and lifestyle. This number can be useful for moderating your calorie intake if you are on a weight-loss diet.
