Why use our calculator to measure progress as opposed to other web-based tools? Because it estimates Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)- the rate at which your body burns calories when resting- based on lean body mass (not just weight) and an innovative fine-tuned calibration feature that is tailored to your own individual metabolism. This is obviously most accurately measured within a laboratory setting, where professionals calculate the concentration of oxygen and carbon dioxide in your inhalation and exhalation, as well as your exact rate of breathing. This is then used to calculate the rate at which oxygen is being converted into carbon dioxide- or essentially exactly how fast your body is burning calories.
