  Discovery Health :: Calculators :: Basal Metabolic Rate
You expend energy no matter what you're doing, even when sleeping.
Thus your Basal Metabolic Rate is the number of calories you'd burn if you stayed in bed all day - a tempting idea for some.
If you've noticed that every year, it becomes harder to eat whatever you want and stay slim, you've also learned that your Basal Metabolic Rate decreases as you age.
