    Best BMR calculator?

    I've used about 5 or 6 online and my BMR has been calculated ranging from 2300 to about 2700 calories per day...Should I just go with an average and pick 2500 as the number, or do you guys have an opinion as to a certain calculator that has proven to be most accurate?

    You could just plug your numbers into the equation that the bmr calculators use (forgot the name) and see what you get. I did that and then compared my numbers to the bmr calculator and they were pretty close (within like 50 cals).

    I'd recommend that.

    It is an equation, you just manually insert your numbers into the equation (probably best worked out on paper w/ assistance of an actual calculator) and you should come up with a reasonable number.

    My caloric intake when I put my numbers into the equation manually (google bmr equation or go to someplace like wikipedia) I came up with something like ~2,033 and when I plugged it into an online bmr calculator I came up with like ~2,050. So they were pretty damn close if I recall correctly.

    Try that, and no I do not know the equation off hand.

    The Harris-Benedict equation for BMR:
    For men: (13.75 x w) + (5 x h) - (6.76 x a) + 66
    For women: (9.56 x w) + (1.85 x h) - (4.68 x a) + 655

    w = weight in kg
    h = height in cm
    a = age

    Multiple result by

    Activity
    Factor Category Definition
    1.2 Sedentary Little or no exercise and desk job
    1.375 Lightly Active Light exercise or sports 1-3 days a week
    1.55 Moderately Active Moderate exercise or sports 3-5 days a week
    1.725 Very Active Hard exercise or sports 6-7 days a week
    1.9 Extremely Active Hard daily exercise or sports and physical job

    Source: Calculating BMR and RMR

    None of them are all that accurate as everyone's metabolism is different. Use the result of a BMR equation as a starting point, and begin experimenting what is working best for you to achieve the best progress possible for the goal you want to achieve.
