So, how many calories can you burn doing nothing?
That depends on your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR). RMR is the minimum number of calories your body needs to support its basic physiological functions, including breathing, circulating blood and all the numerous biochemical reactions required to keep you alive. Your RMR is generally 60-75% of your total daily caloric expenditure.
