Basal Metabolic Rate and Weight Loss

As readers of this site will know, your Basal Metabolic Rate is the amount of energy you expend while at rest (basically the amount of energy you expend while asleep). For weight loss to occur, you must consume more calories than take in, which is why knowing your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is so helpful.

We are pleased to announce two features on this site to make understanding your BMR easier. First, we have a category on this blog for Basal Metabolic Rate, so you can see all blog entries on the topic.

Also, we have added a Basal Metabolic Rate Calculator. It’s an Excel spreadsheet, so simply type in your weight, height, gender and age and you can calculate your own BMR.

We will also be starting a series of articles on boosting your metabolism as an aid to weight loss, so check back over the next few days for more information. Enjoy!
