The BMR Calculation Formula

The Harris-Benedict Equations are used for BMR calculation:

\[ BMR_{\text{men}} = 88.362 + (13.397 \times \text{weight in kg}) + (4.799 \times \text{height in cm}) - (5.677 \times \text{age in years}) \]
\[ BMR_{\text{women}} = 447.593 + (9.247 \times \text{weight in kg}) + (3.098 \times \text{height in cm}) - (4.330 \times \text{age in years}) \]
