Are you interested to know how much calories you need just to be able to survive daily? What you need to do is calculate your BMR or basal metabolism rate. How do you do this? If you are a male, prepare the following materials; paper, pencil, you must also know your weight, height and age. If you already have them in your hands, start with the computation. To start, multiply your weight to 6.23. The result should be added to 12.7 times your height and 6.8 times your age. After completing this data, add the result to 66. After totaling all these, what you will get is your BMR or the number of calories that you used daily.

Your age should then be multiplied to 4.7. The results should then be added together and add 655 to it. Now you have your BMR. This computation is really very useful because once you know how to do it, you will be able to know how much calories you’re burning and how much you still need to burn. This can aid you in your aim to lose weight so make sure you use it as one of your tools in achieving your aim.
