# BMR Calculator: Discover Your Calorie Consumption Sweet Spot

• they left out this part: Harris Benedict Formula
To determine your total daily calorie needs, multiply your BMR by the appropriate activity factor, as follows:

If you are sedentary (little or no exercise) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.2
If you are lightly active (light exercise/sports 1-3 days/week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.375
If you are moderatetely active (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.55
If you are very active (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days a week) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.725
If you are extra active (very hard exercise/sports & physical job or 2x training) : Calorie-Calculation = BMR x 1.9

• Something just doesn't look right on this. Could be me cause I gave up on balancing the checkbook years ago.
• The problem is the spacing. The steps kind of run together and it's easy to miss a calculation.
• Confusing.
• Here's a link to the Harris-Benedict formula, which is what we use to calculate your BMR: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Harris%E2%80
%93Benedict_equation . The formula above is correct.

• mine came out where I have been trying to eat.
• Neither does everyone else,no matter how much the government tries to shove down our throats.
• I think the amount you add at the end is wrong. It says to add 655, but I think it should be 65. I looked online at other calculators, and this is how they do it. My BMR came out about 600 cals too high until I added 65 at the end! The men's version looks right.
• My calculations are wrong or My bmr is over 7250 calories! Love the theory though!
• I am more confused than I ever was.....
• This is a great article!!
• This has both, you can do the top for metric or the bottom for us
• We need a conversion chart for the U.S. since we don't do metric.
• I got a negative number for a result.
• Great
