Your Basal Energy Expenditure

You need energy just to stay alive: for your heart to pump, your brain to work, your internal organs to function and to control your temperature. These functions happen even when you are at rest. Incidentally, these basic tasks burn up 50 – 75 % of all energy we expend each day.

How much energy does your body need for its basal metabolism? If you are a man, you will need more than your female counterpart as men are born with more muscle mass (and therefore burn more calories) than women.

Fill in and find out.
