**Tells you the amount of calories your body would use a day when you are totally at rest. Also Calculate ★ CALORIES BURNED ★ WEIGHT LOSS ★ WEIGHT GAIN. Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) This is when you are not doing any activities all day, the RMR Calculator would give you the calories you burn for the day. There is another standard for calculating the amount of calories you burn while resting. This calculation is called the BMR Calculator, BMR stands for Basal Metabolic Rate.

Therefore, it seems that the RMR Calculator is more useful for the average person needing to calculate how many calories they would burn while resting. The RMR calculator would give a good basis for calculating how many total calories you have burned in a day. You can calculate this total number of calories by first using the RMR Calculator to get your calories burned at rest and then adding the calories you would burn for each activity that you perform during the day. For example if the RMR calculator says your RMR is 1500 calories and you do some moderate activities during the day which would add up to approximately 500 calories then your total calories burned during the day would be 2000 calories. Note: to gain one pound you would need to eat 3500 calories above the amount of calories you burn in one day. Likewise to lose one pound you would need to eat 3500 calories less than the calories your body burns. You can see that the RMR calculator is the correct starting point for determining how many calories to add or subtract from your diet. Dieticians have been using the RMR calculator for many years to determine correct diet calories for clients. Also, the RMR calculator or the BMR calculator are used as part of the “weight gain calculator” and “lose weight calculator” located on the “How to Gain Weight 123″ website. So, when starting a diet to gain weight or lose weight, the starting point is with the ** RMR calculator**.
