The BMR and BMI have been recently identified in the news as an indicator of how at risk you are for cancer, diabetes, heart attack and stroke. The acknowledgement by an individual of the risk they face due to obesity can be the cause of positive changes in the lifestyles of those who need to better manage their weight
The BMR calculator (Basal Metabolic Rate) allows the user to input 4 critical pieces of information about their age, weight, height and activity level. From these pieces of information an estimate of how many calories your body needs to maintain its current weight is produced. In order to lose weight simply increase your amount of daily activity or consume fewer calories. The BMI calculator (Body Mass Index) is a great tool for helping you determine if you are at a level of increased health risk due to your weight. The BMI uses two factors, your height and your weight to determine your estimated body fat percentage. In general a BMI of 26-27 is believed to carry moderate health risks. Those who are overweight or obese are at a higher risk for chronic conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes and high cholesterol.
