What is BMR

I was changing my weight loss goals and I noticed there is a BMR with a value of over 2800. What is that and how does it relate ro my weight loss and exercise?

BMR = Basal Metabolic Rate and is the amount of energy you use in a day just to keep breathing, your heart beating and so on. This tool gives your BMR to be the above but calculated to ensure you lose a certain amount each week

Eat only that amount and make no other changes to your lifestyle and you will lose weight. Add in some exercise (don't forget to log it) and you can eat more and still lose weight at a sensible rate. The tool calculates how much more for you
