Some users had some questions about how we calculate "BMR" values:

The FitClick BMR includes an activity factor while the definition of BMR does not include any such activity factor. As mentioned above in other posts, BMR is the calories you need if you stay in bed and don't move at all). But we viewed BMR by itself as inaccurate since no one stays in bed all day and doesn't move, so an activity factor was added for everyday activity. So when users see this number they are comparing it to the BMR calculators that don't include activity factor and that is why it differs.

However, FitClick needs to be clearer about this on the "BMR" calculator page. And we discovered that we need a better
way to edit BMR, because BMR is only calculated during registration. We'll build an updater tool and add some descriptive information to explain how we calculate BMR (as we feel we are actually more accurate than other BMR calculators out there).
