Good article. Report
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-Calculati
on = BMR x 1.2
If you are lightly active (light exercise/sports 1-3 days/week) : Calorie-Calculati
on = BMR x 1.375
If you are moderatetely active (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/week) : Calorie-Calculati
on = BMR x 1.55
If you are very active (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days a week) : Calorie-Calculati
on = BMR x 1.725
If you are extra active (very hard exercise/sports & physical job or 2x training) : Calorie-Calculati
on = 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. Report
The problem is the spacing. The steps kind of run together and it's easy to miss a calculation. Report
Confusing. Report

mine came out where I have been trying to eat. Report
Neither does everyone else,no matter how much the government tries to shove down our throats. Report
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. Report
My calculations are wrong or My bmr is over 7250 calories! Love the theory though! Report
I am more confused than I ever was..... Report
This is a great article!! Report
This has both, you can do the top for metric or the bottom for us Report
We need a conversion chart for the U.S. since we don't do metric. Report
I got a negative number for a result. Report
