Does anyone have any formulas for calculating caloric intake from lean body mass and not all body mass?

Thanks,
Nick

I have two, but as all equations they are only metabolic rate at rest. You still have to factor in thermic effect of food and activity factor to determine actual total energy expenditure.

Owen:
RMR = 290 + 22.3(LBM)

Cunningham:
RMR = 500 + 22(LBM)

Also remeber that lean body mass measures aren't extremely accurate unless you have undergone a DEXA or possibly a full water submersion, BOD PODS are also fairly accurate.
