Basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the minimal energy in awake. The basal metabolism reference value and the predictive equations of National Institute of Health and Nutrition are reliable in Japanese and the predictive equations of Schofield and FAO/WHO/UNU are internationally common, respectively.
Curiously, the result was too small when I assigned weight and height into predictive equation of FAO/WHO/UNU in the age group of 18-29 year-old female. Although I have obtained the original article and reviewed the contents, I could not find the predictive equations. They seem to calculate BMR from Schofield’s predictive equations.
