What is YOUR rMR?

RMR Calculator - Resting Metabolic Rate

RMR is the abbreviation of resting metabolic rate. This parameter tells how many calories are required by your body to perform the most basic functions (to keep itself alive) while resting. These essential functions are e.g.:

heart beating
circulating blood
basic brain functions
food digestion
sustaining the function of vital organs
RMR does not account for calories burned to support physical activity. Anything that we do through a day requires energy (calories) to be burned in addition to those used to support resting metabolic rate.
