Correctly calculate the daily needs
Whether in the diet counselor or in the sports magazine - often from
the so-called basal metabolism of the question. Also in need of
absolute rest of body energy, for example, to be able to breathe at
all, says Professor Ingo Froboese from the Centre for Health of the
German Sports University in Cologne.
Twelve tips for a healthy diet
This amount of energy we call basal metabolic rate. The required
energy takes on the human body through food. The basal metabolic rate
depends on several factors: gender, age and physical condition.
"The energy that is consumed by additional sports or physical work is
referred to as sales performance," says Froboese. A small proportion
of the demand for energy and calories: it is responsible for ensuring
that the food is completely decomposed and ensures, for example under
stress for an increased pulse.
Calculation of basal metabolic
For the calculation of basal metabolic called Froböse following rule
of thumb. It reads in women: 1 kilocalorie (kcal) per kilogram of body
weight (kg) times 24 hours the resulting energy consumption for a day.
A 65-pound woman comes as a value of 65 kcal kg times 24 hours a day
like 1560. So many calories they can absorb from food, without being
thick and without having to make sport.
Men have on average a BMR of about 1800 kcal. With them is the rule
of thumb: 1.1 kcal per kg body weight by 24 hours. Who is this rule of
thumb can be inaccurate, its revenue base by means of spirometry - a
breath analysis - can be precisely calculated. Gyms and sports medical
clinics offer the procedure. The study will cost about 45 €.
