Estimating or Ballparking Your Daily Caloric
Needs with your RMR
Below, we have listed some generic activity factors that can be multiplied by your current RMR to provide an estimation of your daily caloric needs.
Note that the list below is not necessarily a one size fits all application. Instead, keep in mind there can be several other factors, such as pre-existing health conditions, that should be considered in order to get a more exact figure. Also, there’s a good chance each of you will interpret and define the activity factors differently.
