The Rest Metabolic Rate (RMR) is similar to the Basal Metabolic Rate, however it measures the calories that your body burns while at rest, which is usually a bit higher than the BMR.

This calculator uses the Katch-McArdle formula in combination with the Hume formula to determine your lean body mass (LBM).

Both the Katch-McArdle and the Cunningham formulas are more suitable for individuals whose muscle mass are significantly higher than average.

The Katch–McArdle formula for determining the RMR is defined as:
$$RMR$$ $$=$$ $$370$$ $$+$$ $$21.6$$ $$\times$$ $$LBM_{Hume}$$
$$RMR$$: The Lean Body Mass
$$weight$$: the weight measured in kilogram
$$height$$: The height measured in centimeter(cm)
The unit for RMR is: $$kilocalorie/day \text{ } (kcal/d)$$
