The Harris Benedict Equation is a formula that uses your BMR and then applies an activity factor to determine your total daily energy expenditure (calories).
The BMR formula uses the variables of height, weight, age and gender to calculate the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). This is more accurate than calculating calorie needs based on body weight alone. The only factor it omits is lean body mass and thus the ratio of muscle-to-fat a body has. Remember, leaner bodies need more calories than less leaner ones. Therefore, this equation will be very accurate in all but the very muscular (will underestimate calorie needs) and the very fat (will over-estimate calorie needs).
BMR = 66.5 + (13.75 x kg) + (5.003 x cm) – (6.775 x age)
BMR = 655.1 + (9.563 x kg) + (1.850 x cm) – (4.676 x age)
1 inch = 2.54 cm.
1 kilogram = 2.2 lbs.
As recent as 2005, the ADA (American Dietetic Association) published a comparison of various equations. The Mifflin-St Jeor was found to be the most accurate, especially with young adults with more muscle mass and other obese:
Men: RMR= (9.99 x weight in kg) + (6.25 x height in cm) – (4.92 x age) + 5.
Women: RMR= (9.99 x weight in kg) + (6.25 x height in cm) – (4.92 x age) – 161
This formula is a variation on the basic Mifflin-St Jeor equation that will base the equation on Fat Free Mass (FFM) or Lean Mass. This is more accurate for those who are leaner (and who know their body fat percentage!).
Men & Women:
BMR = 370 + (21.6 X lean mass in kg)
Where Fat Free Mass = Weight in kg – (Body Fat Percentage * Weight in kg).
After calculating the BMR, exercise is factored in. Depending on the exercise level chosen, the BMR will be multiplied by anything from 1.2 to 1.9.
This provides us with maintenance calories. To get the fat loss figure – 20% is subtracted. The extreme fat loss figure has 40% subtracted BUT – there is a “rock bottom” figure that equates to 8 calories per pound of body weight – the extreme fat loss will never be less than this amount. To gain weight, you need to add calories/day based on the desired amount of weight to be gained.
1. What equation did you use and why?
(Harris Benedict equation, no activity)
2. What was your calculated BMR?
3. What activity level number did you use to multiply by your BMR to get your caloric needs? How did you arrive at using this activity level?
4. What was your calculated caloric needs for a typical day?
1630 x 1.2 = 1956
5. How could you use the number you got to lose, gain, or maintain your weight?
(To get the fat loss -20%)
