BMR Calorie Calculator (Belly Fat Buster)
What is BMR? It’s basically the energy you use to function no matter what you’re doing, even when you’re just sleeping. Your (BMR) Basal Metabolic Rate is the number of calories your body burns just from breathing. This number is different for everyone depending on your age, current weight and height. You may have noticed that every year, it becomes harder to eat whatever you want and stay slim. Plus…your Basal Metabolic Rate decreases as you age.
Use the calculator below to figure out your BMR and then depending on your activity. Use the chart below to help figure your daily activity.
Once you figure out you BMR, you will need to figure your daily activity to see what your true calorie usage is for the day.
Activity Multiplier – Find one that pertains to you below and times that by you BMR. That’s your daily calorie maintenance for your body.
Sedentary = BMR X 1.2 (little or no exercise, desk job)
Lightly active = BMR X 1.375 (light exercise/sports 1-3 days/wk)
Mod. active = BMR X 1.55 (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/wk)
Very active = BMR X 1.725 (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days/wk)
Extr. Active = BMR X 1.9 (hard daily exercise/sports & physical job or 2X day training, i.e marathon, contest etc.
Remember: In order to lose weight you will need to create a calorie deficit from your maintenance calories. I subtracted 400 to 500 calories for 60 days and I lost over 18lbs. This allowed my body to lose fat, but still have enough calories to fuel my workouts.
Belly Fat TIP: People that deprive themselves of food in hopes of losing weight also decreases their BMR and makes it harder for their body to lose weight.
