  • I am missing a calorie counter!!!

    jreloj – no one has a built in calorie counter. It is something you need to traumatize your brain so that you can pretend that the calorie counting works and is worth while. We do have built in over eating sensors. Unfortunately it is easy to miss-calibrate them. Fasting helps calibrate the over eating sensors for many of us.

    Have you looked under the bed?

    Under the bed is where monsters hide. That is why Japan is safer … not so many beds for monsters to hide under.

    This Calorie Calculator is based on the Mifflin-St Jeor Equation which calculates basal metabolic rate (BMR), and its results are based on an estimated average. The basal metabolic rate is the amount of energy expended per day at rest. There exist other equations including the Harris-Benedict Equation which was used until 1990 before the introduction of the Mifflin-St Jeor Equation and the Katch-McArdle Formula which calculates resting daily energy expenditure (RDEE) by taking lean body mass into account. The Mifflin-St Jeor Equation is considered the most accurate equation for calculating BMR, with the exception that the Katch-McArdle Formula can be more accurate for people who are leaner that know their body fat percentage. The Mifflin-St Jeor Equation is as follows:

    For men: BMR = 10 × weight(kg) + 6.25 × height(cm) – 5 × age(y) + 5
    For women: BMR = 10 × weight(kg) + 6.25 × height(cm) – 5 × age(y) – 161
