Your BMR Number

Friday, May 24, 2013

This is a Sparkpeople article.
"Your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is a measure of the energy your body uses in normal, everyday functions, like digesting food, moving your lungs and pumping your heart.
This maintenance level is the minimum number of calories your body needs in order to function. Add this number to your calories burned through exercise and activity, and you get your total daily calorie expenditure. Now you know about how many calories you could eat without gaining weight."

Right now, mine's about 1400.
