Using RMR results

I had my RMR tested a few years back. It was about 1500. Should I use this instead of the default BMR if I am trying to lose weight?

    RMR is about 10% higher than your BMR and reflects what your body needs at rest (without activity). In all honesty, I'd probably go with what Cronometer is recommending as it's more likely to reflect your needs based on your current size.

    That said, these two values should be pretty similar.

    Hope this helps!
