Calculate your basal metabolic rate and energy expenditure
Based on your BMI, you can now also calculate your basal metabolic rate and energy expenditure. Your basal metabolic rate shows the energy your body expends in a state of complete rest. The extra energy you need for physical activity is called energy expenditure. Already calculated? Then put together your personal training and nutrition program.
To achieve optimal results from your training, protein shakes such as a Whey Protein Shake are the perfect food after strength training. They stimulate your muscle building and fat burning.
