Harris-Benedict Equation


In the world of 21st century it has become really essential to maintain healthy weight. If the body weight of a person is well maintained, it contributes to the overall health as well as prevents and control many diseases and complications. An overweight or obese person is at a higher risk of developing serious health problems. Healthy weight not only avoids the risk of having diseases but also provides a better physical personality which ultimately leads to a better lifestyle. Our body weight is directly affected by the energy we take and release, so it has become important to track the energy balance in our body. Energy is measured in terms of calories a person gains or loses. Most of the people are not aware how much calories they gain after a particular meal they have taken or the amount of calories they have lost after certain physical activity. The approach is to calculate the calorie intake and loss by maintaining records of the food intake and the physical activity of a particular person. A report can be generated based on the age, gender, height and weight of a person that shows how much calories a person should take and burn to gain or lose a certain amount of weight so as to maintain a healthy body weight. The calculation of calorie count is generated by Harris-Benedict Equation which is regarded as one of the most popular equations for determining the energy needs of a person by nutrition and health professionals.
