Since, BEE varies between the genders, Individual BEE formulas for both male and female are provided in the below section. Lean body mass is a major determinant of this evaluation.

Basal Energy Expenditure Formula


if Male
BEE = 66.5 + (13.75 x W) + (5.003 x H) - (6.775 x A)

if Female
BEE = 655.1 + (9.563 x W) + (1.85 x H) - (4.676 x A)


W = Weight(kg)
H = Height(cm)
A = Age(years)
