BMR – BASEL METABOLIC RATE How quickly the body uses up energy to complete the basic bodily functions. Therefore it is different for every body. Infants and young people have high BMR’s in relation to their size due to how quick they grow and develop. Men have a higher BMR due to more muscle. BMR is ¾ of your energy needs. Level of activity and body weight are all factors of the amount of energy a person requires. High levels of activity allow a person to consume more energy without gaining weight

Any excess intake of energy above what is needed daily is stored in the body as fat. Body mass is made up of 2 things. Lean body mass (muscles, bones and organs) and body fat.
