Enter your weight and body fat percentage into the calculator to determine your BMR using the Katch-McArdle equation.

Katch-McArdle Formula

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 (%)

Katch-McArdle Definition

A katch-mcardle equation is a formula used to calculate the number of calories a person burns while at rest throughout the day.
