Are you eating too much, are you not eating enough, are you eating the right foods?

Your basal metabolic rate is the minimum amount of calories your body needs to just exist healthily at the weight you are.

So how do we use this to achieve your goals?

As an example if you are 80kg you calculate your BMR like so;

If you are female       –           80 x 24 x .9 = 1728

If you are male           –           80 x 24 x 1 = 1920

If you want to loose 5kgs work out the BMR for a 75kg person.

If you want to gain 5kgs work out the BMR for an 85kg person

With this in mind there a lot of other factors you have to put into consideration for a good nutritious lifestyle plan that will help you achieve your goals (e.g Actvity Level, Ratio of Carbs to Protein specific to your goals and your body type)

For an individual assessment and diet plan book a consultation with one of our Personal Trainers, THIS COULD BE THE KEY YOU ARE LOOKING FOR.
