5. FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions):

  • What is Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)?
    • BMR is the number of calories the body needs to maintain basic physiological functions while at rest, such as breathing and circulation.
  • How Accurate are the Calculations?
    • While the Harris-Benedict equation provides estimates based on established formulas, individual variation and other factors may influence actual metabolic rate. These calculations serve as a guideline for calorie estimation.
  • Should I Use This as a Dietary Guide?
    • The BMR Calculator offers a starting point for calorie planning but should be used in conjunction with other factors such as activity level and overall health status. For personalized dietary guidance, consulting a registered dietitian or healthcare provider is recommended.
