Your metabolic rate is the energy measured in calories or
Kcalories (1,000 calories), expended by the body at rest to maintain normal
functions. This makes up about 70% of the calories the body uses. Your metabolic
rate is influenced by quite a number of factors such as gender, age, weight,
height, temperature, food, exercise and many other habits. Use the following
