BMR Calculator FORMULA
This calculator uses the Harris Benedict formula to estimate the calories per day needed to maintain your current weight. This is done by calculating your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and then multiplying that rate by a multiplication factor based on your activity level. For more information, see BMR on Wapedia.com
Calories Per Day = BMR * Activity Multiplier
