BMR (basal metabolic rate) formula:
66.5 + (13.75 x kg body weight) + (5.003 x height in cm) – (6.755 x age) = BMR
66 + ( 6.23 x pounds body weight) + ( 12.7 x height in inches ) – ( 6.76 x age) = BMR
55.1 + (9.563 x kg body weight) + (1.850 x height in cm) – (4.676 x age) = BMR
65.5 + (4.35 x pounds body weight) + (4.7 x height in inches) – (4.7 x age) = BMR
