Cekodok.com : Your malaysian food calorie guide

watch out cos im gonna drop some srs knowledge

here's something i found online. the credibility of the source is somewhat questionable, but hey. no harm in giving it a go.

so lets start with some health calculations.

Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)

The BMR is the amount of energy you need to sustain your life. This includes your breathing, organs and everything else you need to keep alive:

Men: BMR = 66 + (13.7 x wt in kg) + (5 x ht in cm) - (6.8 x age in years)

Women: BMR = 655 + (9.6 x wt in kg) + (1.8 x ht in cm) - (4.7 x age in years)

hmm nice.

next, we move on to calculating your daily calorie requirement.

Daily Calorie Requirement (DCR)

Next, we factor in how active the person is, by using the Activity Multiplier:

  • Sedentary = BMR x 1.2 (little or no exercise, desk job)
  • Lightly active = BMR x 1.375 (light exercise/sports 1-3 days/wk)
  • Moderately active = BMR x 1.55 (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/wk)
  • Very active = BMR x 1.725 (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days/wk)
  • Extra active = BMR x 1.9 (hard daily exercise/sports & physical job or 2xday training)
lol i hope this site will be helpful for my thesis
