Enter your weight and body fat percentage into the calculator to determine your BMR using the Katch-McArdle equation.
The following is the equation described by the Katch-McArdle formula.
BMR = 370 + (23.6 * (W X (100 – (BF))) / 100)
- Where BMR is your basal metabolic rate
- W is your weight (kg)
- BF is your body fat percentage (%)
A katch-mcardle equation is a formula used to calculate the number of calories a person burns while at rest throughout the day.
This equation is a formula that was created for calculating a BMR, or basal metabolic rate.
BMR is the rate at which a human body burns calories while at rest, i.e. not related to exercise.
