0 Calories/day
This equation estimating BMR based on body mass and age
range. SEE(Standard Error of Estimation), need to adjust upward or downward
based on principles more muscular than usual require more energy than the
average, Obese subjects require less, Patients at the young end of the age range
require more energy, patients at the high end of the age range require less
energy.

BMR Basal Matabolic Rate. To understand BMR we need to understand the TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expendature) of our body. We consume energy for vital function of our body, Physical Activity and thematic effect of food.
Basal Matabolic Rate or Body Metabolic Rate is that how much energy expand to maintain vital function of your body activity like blinking, heart pumpting, blood circulating etc.
That if you rest on bed and do nothing, then the amount of energy need to maintain your body activity is BMR. It also maintain your body weight.
To exact calculation of BMR of an individual is not possible. But we can calculate approximate value of it. On that base we can correct our intake and maintain our weight and health. There are various methods to estimate BMR. Some of the well known and used equations as follows:
HARRIS  BENEDICT EQUATION :This is most widely used equation to calculate BMR published in 1919. The calculation methods for men and women are different, mainly due to difference in body mass or weight. The revised HarrisBenedict equation publised in 1984. In our BMR calculation used revised HarrisBenedict equation.
For Men BMR = 13.397 X W + 4.799 X H(cm)  5.677 X A + 88.362 Calories/day
For Women BMR = 9.247 X W + 3.098 X H(cm)  4.330 X A + 447.593 Calories/day
*** W = body weight in kg, H = height in cm, A = age in years.
MIFFLIN  ST. JEOR EQUATION :It is the best prediction equation to estimate BMR. The equation that is recommended to estimate BMR by the US Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. THis equation considered more acurate then the revised HarrisBenedict equation.
BMR = 10 X W + 6.25 X H(cm)  5.0 X A + s Calories/day
*** W = body weight in kg, H = height in cm, A = age in years. s = +5 for males and 161 for female
SCHOFIELD EQUATION :This method of estimating BMR was introduced for adult men and women in 1985. This equation was used by WHO to make technical report. This method use individuals body mass and age range to estimate BMR. There are different chart for men and women.

*** W = body weight in kg, SEE Standard Error of Estimation
This equation estimating BMR based on body mass and age range. SEE(Standard Error of Estimation), need to adjust upward or downward based on principles more muscular than usual require more energy than the average, Obese subjects require less, Patients at the young end of the age range require more energy, patients at the high end of the age range require less energy.
KATCH  McARDLE EQUATION :This equation is use to predict Resting Daily Energy Expendature(RDEE). This formula use weight and body fat percentage to estimate RDEE , which is identical to BMR.
RDEE = 370 + (21.6  L) Calories/day
L = W(1  F/100)
*** W = body weight in kg, L= Lean body Mass in Kg., F = Body fat %
