I cannot stress enough how important this is to your weight loss efforts and I can’t believe how many people don’t actually know what BMR is! Spread the word!
Disclaimer: I am not a doctor, nutritionist, or expert. This information was obtained from this thread on myfitnesspal.com which explains it well in layman’s terms, and based on my other research, there seems to be a consensus about this information within the scientific community. I’m not encouraging you to consume 1000 cals below your BMR, I’m simply making people aware of this threshold! As always, use common sense when you’re dieting and listen to your body.
