# Mifflin St. Jeor

Mifflin St. Jeor derived a formula to find the resting metabolic rate. RMR is the amount of calories that is burned while in complete rest. Various scientists have derived many formulas and equations to find the RMR. This calculator uses Mifflin St. Jeor equation to find the resting metabolic rate. RMR is also known as BMR (basal metabolic rate).

## Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) Calculation

### Formula

For Men : 10 x weight (kg) + 6.25 x height (cm) – 5 x Age + 5

For Women : 10 x weight (kg) + 6.25 x height (cm) – 5 x Age – 161

### Example

A 25 years female weighing 50 kgs and 154 cms tall will have a RMR rate of?

**RMR rate**= 10 x 50 + 6.25 x 154 – 5 x 25 – 161

= 1176. 5
