Geoff and his metabolic rate..

Interesting article in wikihow on calculating and increasing your metabolic rate:-

  1. Calculate your resting metabolic rate (RMR). RMR is often used interchangeably with basal metabolic rate (BMR); although they are slightly different, estimating either is sufficient for the purpose of losing weight. To calculate your RMR, use the Mifflin-St Jeor equation (which is more reliable than the Harris-Benedict equation[2]). There are also calculators online that can do this for you:
    • RMR = 9.99w + 6.25s – 4.92a + 166g-161
    • w = weight in kilograms; if you know your weight in pounds, divide by 2.2 to get your weight in kilograms
    • s = height in centimeters; if you know your height in inches, multiply by 2.54 to get your height in centimeters
    • a = age in years
    • g = gender = 1 for males, 0 for females

So for my good self my RMR is : (9.99*83)+(6.25*180)-(4.92*60)+166-161 = 1664 so my daily consumption to maintain myweight should be RMR x 1.15 which for me is 1664 * 1.15 = 1914 cals per day.

So to increase your metabolic rate you need to be male, young, tall and heavy!

Also, apparently, muscle burns 77cals/Kg/day and fat only burns 4cals/Kg/day although how you calculate what weight of muscle you have is a mystery to me…

Other interesting stuff like the importance of drinking water and eating many small meals.

  1. I have also heard that those who are more muscular burn more energy than those who aren't as well-built. I suppose it is part of the cycle to maintain and keep the muscles in shape?

  2. Many now interests how correctly to eat. The number of the people dissatisfied with the figure or health recently has increased and, as consequence, trying to get rid of excess weight. You should pick up a diet approaching you, and also learn to make correctly balanced diet.
