This is a free BMR Calculator. It will calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate (MBR), i.e. the calories you are going to burn if you just stay in bed all day. Your BMR depends on your gender, weigh, height, and age. It decreases when your age increases, which means the older you get the harder it becomes to stay slim (unless you excercise or keep diet).
The above calculator is fully functional, so if you want to use it yourself, go ahead. Please note it can't replace a professional medical advice! If you are planning an aggressive weight loss diet, better consult a doctor. The results of your calculations are for illustrative purposes and are approximate
This calculator uses the Harris-Benedict equation to calculate your BMR. To calculate your daily calorie needs it applies the Harris-Benedict Principle.
