Enter the basal metabolic rate (cals) into the Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Thermic Effect of Feeding.

## Thermic Effect of Feeding Formula

TEF = BMR * .1

Variables:

- TEF is the Thermic Effect of Feeding (cals)
- BMR is the basal metabolic rate (cals)

To calculate the Thermic Effect of Feeding, multiply the BMR (basal metabolic rate) by .1 (10%).

## How to Calculate the Thermic Effect of Feeding?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Thermic Effect of Feeding.

- First, determine the basal metabolic rate (cals).
- Next, gather the formula from above = TEF = BMR * .1.
- Finally, calculate the Thermic Effect of Feeding.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
