# Calculate Your Brain Energy Consumption

Last updated: Monday, May 01, 2023

Find out how much energy your brain uses per day based on your basal metabolic rate. Source: NIH

The formula for is given as:
$$E_{brain}$$ $$=$$ $$2$$ $$\times$$ $$weight$$ $$+$$ $$1.25$$ $$\times$$ $$height$$ $$-$$ $$age$$ $$+$$ $$\dfrac{s}{5}$$
$$BMR$$: The basal metabolic rate
$$height$$: $$= height_{feet} + height_{inch}$$
$$weight$$: The weight
$$height_{feet}$$: The first part of the height measured in feet. For example $${\color{rgb(230,179,255)} 5}$$ in $${\color{rgb(230,179,255)} 5}$$'10''
$$height_{inch}$$: The second part of the height measured in inch. For example $${\color{rgb(230,179,255)} 10}$$ in 5'$${\color{rgb(230,179,255)} 10}$$''
$$age$$: your age measured in years
The unit for energy is: $$Kilocalorie / day \text{ } (kcal/d)$$
