MetaboCalc Publisher's description
MetaboCalc uses the Harris-Benedict equation to give you an approximation of how many calories you burn per day and at rest.
MetaboCalc uses the Harris-Benedict equation to give you an approximation of how many calories you burn per day and at rest. It shows the base number, and also plus and minus 5% and 20% due to errors inherent in that equation.
Basically, this calculator is intended to show your RMR (Resting Metabolic Rate) or BMR (Basal Metabolic Rate). Actually, BMR and RMR are slightly different, but they're often referred to as the same thing, so we're not going to worry too much about that.
It will also show your BMI (Body Mass Index) which is sometimes an indication of whether you are underweight, overweight, or just right for your height and weight. MetaboCalc should be used as an approximation only.
When setting up the calculator, you can choose how to configure the user's height (in centimeters or inches) and their weight (in kilograms or pounds), You can also configure it so that either Pounds/Inches or Kilograms/Centimeters is the default, and even change the spelling of Centimeters if you like.
You may also change the text of the messages in the little popup "help" windows so that you can explain this to your users in an appropriate manner.
