- Age: 80
- Height :1feet 0 inches (ie 12 inches)
- weight :22 pounds
- Gender: male
- Activity level-->little or no exercise : BMR x 1.2
Then using the formulas at the mentionned links:
Men: BMR = 66 + ( 6.23 x weight in pounds ) + ( 12.7 x height in inches ) - ( 6.8 x age in year ) ==> BMR = -188.54 ==> Energy needs = BMR * activity level = -188.54 * 1.2 = -226.248
I know the information are probably not common (80 years old, 1feet 0 inch, 22 pounds), but what does it mean when you get a negative BMR and a negative Energy need?
I did not try all possible cases where u might have a negative value (For negative, it is in general required: left side < right side where right side is ( 6.8 x age in year ) ) but if let's say a nutritionist is using this formula on a client and gets a negative result what do they do?
