Calculating your calorie needs made simple
by Tony bednarowski


hether you’re just curious or have a serious need to evaluate your daily calorie needs due to weight concerns, you may want to consider your basal metabolic rate (BMR). This figures the amount of energy (calories) one’s body uses when in a resting or nonactive state. The BMR calculator is one of the most widely used measurements in determining one’s basal metabolic rate or base. This excellent tool is often used by dieticians, personal trainers or individuals in conjunction with the body mass index (BMI) calculator. The BMI calculator is used to figure out where a person’s healthy body weight range is. The BMR calculator is then used to help figure out how many calories a person should be consuming to get them to their healthy body weight. So here is where most people (and yes, even some of our trusted professionals) go wrong while using the BMR calculator. While using this standard measuring tool, you must first understand what you are measuring and why. Muscle is calorie active tissue, which means it is the physical place where calories are burned for energy. Fat is simply storage or extra energy. If you can grasp this concept, then you will also understand that when using the BMR
Nature’s Pathways® | March 2013

calculator to help with weight loss, you must take into account your body fat percentage. Why? So you can accurately calculate the right amount of calories needed based on calorie active tissue (your true fat burning machine) not overall body weight. What follows are three simple suggestions to help you determine your daily calorie needs using a bMr calculator so you can achieve your weight loss goal more easily: 1. Go to a trusted source, either a recommended local personal trainer or health professional and have your body fat level taken. 2. Take your actual overall body weight and subtract your body fat level to determine your lean body mass or “calorie active tissue.” • or example, if you are 150 lbs. and you F are at 22% body fat, figure 150 minus 33 (22% of 150), which equals 117. • our lean body mass is 117 pounds. Y 3. Search the Internet for a BMR

calculator. Punch in the four calculating components it will ask you for: gender, height, age and weight (be sure to use your lean body mass NOT your existing overall body weight). There you have it. This will give you the amount of calories needed to maintain your current body weight in a non-active state. Any more calories than that results in weight gain, any fewer calories than that results in weight loss. It’s just that simple.

transformational breathing
Breathe consciously. Gain insight. Be empowered.
by Parnee Paras


xperiencing a breath session is the only way to truly know what it is. Words cannot genuinely describe this powerful, magical, sacred and healing experience. However, hearing what transpires during a session often puts people at ease and encourages their participation. The first focus during a session is reminding the student to take deeper breaths. Once their deep breathing is more stable, the instructor then brings their attention to the last part of their breath, where their upper chest rises. These two steps form waves of breath, oxygen entering the lungs and carbon dioxide and other waste exiting the lungs. What happens during this experience is different for everyone. Similar to our fingerprints, our breath pattern is unique to us, as are all of our life experiences that affect our pattern. When we are scared, we tend to hold our breath, and this can sometimes affect our pattern permanently unless we are trained to change our pattern through transformational breathing. With this amazing self-healing tool, we can improve our breathing pattern with daily practice. It only takes a few minutes a day and consciously paying attention to our breathing to make lasting and profound changes. Many people say continued breathing practice, facilitated and on their own, heals past trauma, helps reduce their anxiety, alleviates their depression, transforms their lives/thoughts, reduces their use of inhalers, promotes clarity, deepens their meditation practice, helps increase their energy level and much more. The people that benefit most from a breath session are open to experiencing a bodywork session they’ve never had before. They tend to have an open mind, which is equivalent to opening a door to a new perspective of their current reality. If you’d like a new outlook on your life, please contact me for more information about my monthly classes.
