BMR stands for basal metabolic rate, and is defined as the amount of energy your body expends/burns when at rest. It assumes that your body is in a post-absorptive state, meaning that your digestion system is inactive (requires about 12 hours of fasting), and that you’re in an environment with a moderate temperature.
[h4]Body Fat Percentage[/h4]
Your body fat percentage is determined by taking the total weight of a person’s fat and dividing it by their total weight. The percentage given consists of both essential body fat, and storage body fat. Body fat percentage is a far more accurate measurement than BMI (Body Mass Index) for those with greater than average muscle mass, as the BMI scale typically incorrectly places such individuals in the overweight or obese categories.
