This article describes how to check body parameter formulas for a client.
To review the formulas section in a client record, follow these steps.
Step 1: Open and edit your client record.
Step 2: Click the Formulas tab
Formulas use values from the profile section of the client record to generate results. If some of the sections in the profile view are incomplete, then the formulas will not produce results.
The formulas include:
- BMI (body mass index)
- BMR using three different formulas that take into account different parameters:
- Harris/Benedict equation
- Mifflin and St Jeor Equation
- Katch-McArdle Formula
- Weight maintenance level, calculated as BMR times Activity Level
- Daily recommended intake for protein based on:
- body weight
- lean body mass
