Basal Metabolic Rate in Indian Male and Female Subjects of Differing Body Mass Index
AbstractThe FAO/WHO/UNU Expert Consultation on Energy and Protein Requirements adopted the Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) as the basis of expressing energy requirements. The BMR is the amount of energy used for a series of functions that are essential for life. It is measured under standard conditions that include being awake in the supine position after 10 to 12 hours of fasting and eight hours of physical rest, and being in a state of mental relaxation in an ambient environmental temperature that does not elicit heat-generating or heat-dissipating processes.
