14 factors that impact your base metabolic rate (BMR)
The BMR refers to the energy your body needs to maintain homeostasis. Your BMR is primarily determined by your total lean mass, especially muscle mass, because lean mass requires a lot of energy to maintain. Anything that reduces lean mass will reduce your BMR.
What can impact your BMR?
As your BMR accounts for so much of your total energy consumption, preserving or even increasing your lean muscle mass through exercise is essential when trying to lose weight.
This means combining exercise (particularly weight-bearing and resistance exercises to boost muscle mass) with changes towards healthier eating patterns, rather than dietary changes alone, as eating too few calories encourages the body to slow the metabolism to conserve energy.
Maintaining lean muscle mass also helps reduce the chance of injury when training and exercise increase your daily energy expenditure.
An average man has a BMR of around 1,696 calories per day, while an average woman has a BMR of around 1,410 calories per day. Energy expenditure is continuous, but the rate varies throughout the day. The rate of energy expenditure is usually lowest in the early morning.
Factors that affect our BMR:
What is the Thermic Effect of Food?
Your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) rises after you eat because you use energy to eat, digest, and metabolize the food you have just eaten. This is called the Thermic Effect of Food or diet-induced thermogenesis.
The rise occurs soon after you start eating and peaks 2 to 3 hours later.
This rise in BMR can range between 2% and 30%, depending on the size of the meal and the types of foods eaten.
Different foods raise BMR by differing amounts. For example
Fats raise the BMR 0 to 5%
Carbohydrates raise the BMR by 5 to 10%
Proteins raise the BMR by 20 to 30%
THE LOOPHOLE: Hot, spicy foods (for example, foods containing chili, horseradish, and mustard) can have a significant thermic effect.
