Below is an application of the Mifflin St. Jeor Equation for the calculation of Resting Energy Expenditure (REE). This interactive tool is a wonderful method of engaging clients, students, and health professionals alike in the measurement of individualized energy expenditure!
WHAT IS THIS EQUATION? The Mifflin St. Jeor Equation was recommendedfor use as the standard predictive equation for RestingEnergy Expenditure (REE) by the American Dietetic Association, replacing the formerHarris-Benedict Equation.The following are the calculations used to determineREE for healthy, adult males and females:MALE: 10 x weight (kg) + 6.25 x height (cm) - 5 x Age + 5FEMALE: 10 x weight (kg) + 6.25 x height (cm) - 5 x Age -161
HOW CAN I USE THIS EQUATION INMY PRACTICE? The Mifflin St. Jeor Equation can be used to estimate theREE of healthy, adult patients. To create a moreinteractive experience for your patients, we have designed an “Energy Estimation Wheel” for resting energy expenditure (REE) and resting metabolic rate (RMR).
