Energy Needs and Body Composition LabBody Circumference MeasurementsWaist circumference (across bellybutton) 33InchesHip circumference (across pubic bone) 38InchesA waist circumference of >35 inches in females and > 40 inches in males is a risk factor for weight-relateddiseases (heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, some cancers, gall bladder disease andgall stones, osteoarthritis, gout, breathing issues like sleep apnea and asthma).Waist measurement divided by hip measurement is waist to hip ratio or WHR= 0.87A waist to hip ratio (WHR) of > 0.8 in females and > 0.9 in males is a risk factor for weight-relateddiseases (if overweight).Calorie Needs / Energy ExpenditureHarris Benedict equation for Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR): calories needed at restWomen: 655 + (4.35 x lb) + (4.7 x height in inches) - (4.7 x age in years) = BMR caloriesMen: 66 + (6.23 x lb) + (12.7 x height in inches) - (6.76 x age in years) = BMR calories66 + (6.23 x 174=1,084.02) + (12.7 x 70=889) – (6.76 x 23=155.48) = 2,194.5Activity factors to multiply onto BMR resultIntensity of Physical ActivityActivityFactor
