Your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is defined as the rate at which your body uses energy when you are resting in order to keep vital functions going such as breathing
Your BMR naturally decreases when you age, making it harder for you to stay fit as you get older. Additionally, reducing the number of calories you take in can negatively impact your BMR – so cutting calories in hopes to swing your BMR in the right direction is ineffective.
So what can you do to counter this natural slowdown? Applying a consistent routine of cardiovascular exercise is the best way to increase BMR and improve your overall health and wellness.
