BMR - Basal Metabolic Rate The amount of energy your body needs at rest. Think of this as the amount of energy your body needs if all it did was sleep all day.

BMR less 25% This is the figure I used as the energy intake per day to lose weight. My theory was if the body requires the energy as determined by the BMR to sustain itself, then eating less would result in stored energy being used. This figure corresponds to the figure suggested by dieting books.

BMR plus 20% This figure is an estimate of energy your body needs with normal activity such as office work. If you eat more than your body requires some of that extra energy will be stored.
