Calories your body needs

How many calories your body needs :

To determine your daily calorie needs, we need to start figuring BMR (basal metabolic rate) number.

BMR, refers to number of calories a person would burn even he or she did nothing but sit or lie in ...one place.

BMR sounds awesome but BMR slows down the metabolism as we get older, making it harder to eat what ever we want and still be skinny.
