## REE Formula

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

Males:

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

Females:

REE = 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.

## Example Problem

How to calculate REE?

**First, determine your height.**For this example, the person is measured to be 182.88 cm.

**Next, determine your weight.**This person’s weight is measured to be 70kg.

**Next, determine your age.**The person in this example is 20 years old.

**Finally, calculate the REE.**Using the formula above, the resting energy expenditure is found to be:

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

REE = 66.47 + 13.75 * (70) + 5* (182.88) – 6.76 * (20)

REE = 1808.17 kcal.
