Your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the amount of energy expended while at rest.
Everybody requires a minimum number of calories to live. This minimum number is called the basal metabolic rate (BMR). Your BMR is the number of calories your organs need to function while you perform no activity whatsoever. You can think of it as the amount of energy you'd burn if you stayed in bed all day.
Your BMR is based largely on involuntary functions like breathing and pumping blood, changes in your daily activity don't do much to raise or lower this number. However, increasing muscle mass will increase your BMR, because muscle is metabolically "hungry" and it takes more energy to maintain more muscle. In essence, if you have a lot of muscle mass, you'll burn more calories at rest.
Use this BMR calculator to find out your BMR, determine your caloric needs, and lose or gain weight.
