Calculate your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), the number of calories your body need when resting in a 24 hour period. BMR is affected by stress, exercise, fear and illness.
How does BMR works
As you get older, your BMR will decrease – meaning that you need to eat less as you get older to maintain your metabolic rate.
Regular exercise and improvements to your health and fitness will help to improve your body’s ability to burn energy, as this typically slows down as you age.
