# BMI Formula

## BMI Formula:

Any BMI Formula on this Page is a general rule for Determining Basic Condition. They can and should be adjusted according to Musculature and Fitness.

BMI Formula Results subjective.

 Metric Formula (Cm): Men Percentage of Fat = 495 / (1.0324 – 0.19077 x (LOG10(waist – neck)) + 0.15456 x (LOG10(height))) – 450 Women Percentage of Fat = 495 / (1.29579 – 0.35004 x (LOG10(waist + hip – neck)) + 0.22100 x (LOG10(height))) – 450 English Formula (Inch): Men Percentage of Fat = (86.01 x LOG10((waist) – (neck))) – (70.041 x LOG10(height)) + 36.76 Women Percentage of Fat = (163.205 x LOG10((waist) + (hip) – (neck))) – (97.684 x LOG10(height)) – 78.387

## BMR Calculator:

The BMR or Basal Metabolic Rate is the calorie your body needs to function when you are in complete rest. Here is how you figure out what your BMR is:

Table-3

 English Formula (Inch and Pound): Women BMR = 655 + ( 4.35 x weight ) + ( 4.7 x height ) – ( 4.7 x age in years ) Men BMR = 66 + ( 6.23 x weight ) + ( 12.7 x height ) – ( 6.8 x age in year ) Metric Formula (Cm and Kg): Women BMR = 655 + ( 9.6 x weight ) + ( 1.8 x height ) – ( 4.7 x age in years ) Men BMR = 66 + ( 13.7 x weight ) + ( 5 x height ) – ( 6.8 x age in years )

## Daily Calorie Needs Calculator

The daily calorie need is calculated with the help of Harris-Benedict principle. According to this the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is calculated. Now to determine your total daily calorie needs, multiply your BMR by the appropriate activity factor, as follows:

Table-4

 Your Activity Level: Daily Calorie Need Sedentary (little or no exercise) BMR x 1.2 Lightly active (light exercise/sports 1-3 days/week) BMR x 1.375 Moderately active (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/week) BMR x 1.375 Very active (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days a week) BMR x 1.725 Extra active (very hard exercise/sports & physical job or 2x training) BMR x 1.9

## Weight Loss Calculator

The weight loss calculator calculates how much body fat you have to reduce (if needed) to get a healthy weight. If your percentage of body fat is more than acceptable limit (see table-2) you have to reduce your body fat to avoid some health risk like Diabetics, Type-2 Cancer, Sleep Arena, etc. The rule for good weight loss is slow and steady. A rate 5% to 10% is recommended. The calorie equivalent of body fat is 3500 calorie per pound, i.e. if you want to reduce one pound of your body fat in one week you have to reduce 500 calorie per day from your required daily calorie need and total 7 x 500 = 3500 calorie in a week.
