How to calculate your BMR:

A) Divide your weight by 2.2 ( = your weight in kilograms)
Multiply that number by the BMR factor (1 for a man, .9 for a woman)
Multiply that number by 24 (for hours in a day)
This is your BMR.

B) Add that number to your activity level, which is:
Sedentary = 40-50% of your BMR
Light activity = 55-65% of your BMR
Moderate activity = 65-75% of your BMR
Heavy activity = 75-100% of your BMR
This is your activity level energy requirements.

C) Add the numbers from A and B together.
This is your daily calorie requirement.
You need to eat at least this much to maintain your current body weight.
To lose weight, cut about 500 calories per day (for a 2,000 calorie-per-day diet).


Can't find amr.
