#### Formula:

**Resting Metabolic Rate using Mifflin St. Jeor Equation : **

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
