Your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR)

Your basal metabolic rate is the metabolic rate of each cell in your body. This is about 70% of your caloric output. The more active the cell, the more energy it needs for the activity, which is almost solely from stored fat.  Therefore, to lose weight, you need to increase your metabolism.  This is best accomplished by increasing your daily activities and exercise. Certain supplements, herbs also help to raise the metabolism.

Your Dietary Induced Thermogenesis (DIT)

The dietary induced thermogenesis is the amount of energy needed for proper digestion.  Your DIT is about 5 - 10% of your caloric output.
