What are the similarities between someone's resting metabolic rate and basal metabolic rate?

BothMeasureSame. BMR stands for Basal Metabolic Rate and RMR stands for Resting Metabolic Rate Both calculate the calories burnt in a day if a person were to do no activity at all Equation used to measure BMR is HarrisBenedict Equation And Muffin equation calculates RMR These days RMR is used more often than BMR because RMR gives more accurate results.
