About Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)
In Biology and related sciences, the term Basal Metabolic Rate, with the international abbreviation BMR, characterizes the minimum metabolic rate that can be observed in an animal organism, most commonly at rest and in an environment with a temperature equal to that of its body.
At this stage the food is neither digested nor assimilated. This rate is expressed in energy per unit area at a given time. The basal metabolic rate accounts for about 60 to 75% of the daily calorie expenditure by a person.
