Enter your height, weight, and age into the calculator to determine your resting energy expenditure (REE).

## REE Formula

The following formula is used to calculate a resting energy expenditure (REE):

Males:

REE = RDEE = 66.47 + 13.75 * (W) + 5* (H) – 6.76 * (A)

Females:

REE = RDEE = 65.51 + 9.65 * (W) + 1.84 *(H) – 4.68 (A)

• Where REE is resting energy expenditure (kcal)
• W is weight (kg)
• H is height (cm)
• A is age (years)

## REE Definition

REE stands for resting energy expenditure. It is a measure of the total energy required for a person’s body to function while resting and doing no activities. This term is sometimes referred to as BMR.

REE is also sometimes referred to as RDEE which stands for resting daily energy expenditure.
