The assessment of a person’s basal metabolic is a preventive measure and screens for issues related to diet, excess weight and physical inactivity. The basal metabolic rate is the daily amount of calories the body consumes in order to maintain vital functions. In a sedentary person, the basal metabolic rate is around 70-80% of total daily energy expenditure. Total daily energy expenditure is determined by adding the calorie consumption required by a person’s lifestyle and level of physical activity to their basal metabolic rate. These three variables are used to define an individual weight control programme.
Body mass index: a widely used parameter for obtaining a general body weight assessment.
The concentration of oxygen consumed and carbon dioxide produced is measured in a given volume of air. The variation of the respiratory gas concentration is directly proportional to basal caloric consumption.
This corresponds to the amount of daily calories consumed by the body in order to maintain normal everyday functions.
