For calculating this doctors will initially use your gender, weight, height, and age to analyze your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). After that, your Basal Metabolic Rate is multiplied by an activity factor. This calculation helps to determine the number of calories you consume for your total weight loss. When a person is undergoing vigorous training for weight loss, it is crucial to keep a Total Daily Energy Expenditure daily.

Basal Metabolic Rate

Our body uses up many calories through its daily functions such as breathing and maintaining the pulse. Basal Metabolic Rate is nothing but helpful to count the number of calories your body is in rest position throughout the day. So it is easier for you to understand or calculate the total amount of calories burnt in your body even on your non-workout day.

Calories and macronutrients

Therefore maintain a healthy lifestyle, exercise regularly,  eat healthy, supplement with the right nutrients and get the perfect shape for your body.
