Health Calculator January 21, 2006
This post includes an online calculator that calculates how many calories you burn per day and your Body Mass Index (BMI).
Your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the calories needed for basic body function without any activity. Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE) your BMR plus calories burned from activities. These can be helpful in planning food intake, diet, etc.

- A BMI of over 30 indicates obesity.
Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR): (Calories/Day)
