I'm down with a slight fever on my birthday. Great. Anyways, I forgot to add some details on my Basal Metabolic Rate. What is BMR? Well, it's basically how many calories your body would burn in a day if you didn't do anything but lay in bed the whole day.
Here's the formula:-
67 + (13.728 x weight in kg) + (508 x height in metres) - (6.9 x age) = BMR
661 + (9.636 x weight in kg) + (175.2 x height in metres) - (4.7 x age) = BMR
So yeah, that's how it work for your BMR. Then you have your multipliers, which you add on to see how much calories you burn in a day doing what you usually do. They are:-
Sloth-like : 1.15 multiplier
No exercise but normal everyday activities : 1.2 multiplier
2-3 exercise sessions a week : 1.4 multiplier
4-5 exercise sessions a week : 1.6 multiplier
6-7 exercise sessions a week : 1.8 multiplier
So mine adds up as:-
67 + (13.728 x 67) + (508 x 1.67) - (6.9 x 22) = 1616.336 calories a day.
1616.336 x 1.6 = 2586.13 calories a day
Every 500 calories you cut from your diet amounts to 1 pound of weight lost per week more or less. So I suppose that's why I'm losing pretty decent weight now. Well, that's that.
