    Question about BMR calculation vs BMI calculation: After using one of the simple BMR calculators online (requiring age, gender, height, and weight) I got a number anywhere from 1900 – 2133 cal for my BMR. Using the Harris Benedict Equation, I multiplied my BMR by 1.55 (moderately active category) and the result was 3306 calories, within 36 calories of your 15 calories/lb of body weight for weight maintenance from your lean out article.

    Based on the information provided in this episode, are you advising me to eat 500 calories/day less than my BMR or 2133? I think I’m missing something, because that would be a really low number. Multiplying my weight by 13 calories gets me a number that is 466 less than the BMR x 1.55. I should stick with that number correct?

      I am not advising you to do anything and second you have it wrong. I just spoke about when working with clients that are mirror obsessed, eating to your BMR and letting the training create the need deficit need to lose weight. Creating a 500 calorie deficit over the course of 7 days will result in a 1 pound weight loss. I would never recommend for anyone to eat less than their BMR.

      Without an accurate body fat measurement or BMR test, you have no real way of knowing what your BMR is. It is all speculation.

    Typo corrected here:
    * Based on the information provided in this episode, are you advising me to eat 500 calories/day less than my BMR OF 2133

    @John…thanks for the clarification. I should have stated that weight loss was the goal driving my statement.
