When i started there back in October i had a BMR of 1742 now its at 1765.<img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><br><br>
I am also just fat and no longer Obese. If i would follow the plan she gives me better i would probably be alot better off. I have lost 10 pounds so far, she has this down to where if i behave myself i should just lose a pound a week.

Hooray for no longer being obese! I remember crossing that threshold. You'll never go back. I've got 17lbs to "Normal" myself. Woo hoo for you!

You're not fat. You're an athelete. The rest is just numbers.<br><br>
Work towards being a better athlete, the rest will fall into place.<br><br>
Keep up the good work man! <img alt="notworthy.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/notworthy.gif">

When I had BMR tested it was with a device that I breathed into and it measured CO2 or I think. They calculated the BMR based on weight and the CO2 measurement. At the time it was 1900 something.<br><br>
I thought that was pretty high for a girl. <img alt="huh.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/huh.gif">

That is SO awesome, Eric!! Just keep doing what you're doing, and you'll see that number move up even higher and the fat and pounds will come off too!! I love to see people make progress toward their fitness/losing weight goals. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
BMR (basal metabolic rate) is the number of calories you can eat in 24 hours and maintain your current weight. So, you obviously want that to be high. It basically tells you how high your metabolism is. The faster your body metabolizes calories, the more you can eat. According to my Tanita scale, my BMR is around 2150. Of course, it also shows that I have the metabolism of a 15 year old! I'm not sure how accurate it is, though, it is very consistent. I do have pretty low body fat, but not compared to real athletes! Yesterday, I burned 1800 calories on my long run, so that's almost a day's worth of calories!! My goal is to keep gaining muscle, though, not necessarily lose weight.
