Harris-Benedict Equation
Male BMR = 66.4730 + (13.7516 * W) + (5.0033 * H) - (6.7550 * A)
W = (Male BMR + ( 6.7550 * A ) - ( 5.0033 * H ) + 66.4730 ) / 13.7516
H = (Male BMR + ( 6.7550 * A ) - ( 13.7516 * W ) - 66.4730 ) / 5.0033
Male BMR = 66.4730 + (13.7516 * W) + (5.0033 * H) - (6.7550 * A)

Female BMR = 655.0955 + (9.5634 * W) + (1.8496 * H) - (4.6756 *A)

Male BMR = 66.4730 + (13.7516 * W) + (5.0033 * H) - (6.7550 * A)
Female BMR = 655.0955 + (9.5634 * W) + (1.8496 * H) - (4.6756 *A)
