Just wondered how you all calculated your BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate)?
I found this formula:
BMR = 66 + (13.7 x weight in kg) + (5 x height in cm) - (6.8 x age)
So for a 30 year old bodybuilder of 220lbs (100kg) at 5’11" (178cm) it comes up to:
BMR = 66 + (13.7 x 100kg) + (5 x 178cm) ï¿½?? (6.8 x 30)
BMR = 2122 calories per day

Wondering if this is what everyone else uses to work it out?
