Often we diet to reduce weight. It is always an added advantage if we consume drinks which increases our metabolic rate along with the diet so that we reduce our weight faster.

What is metabolic rate? It is the rate at which the energy is used (i.e. the calories burned) per unit time.

Types of metabolic rates:
1) BMR (Basal metabolic rate): is the number of calories burned if you were asleep all day long. In order to calculate the BMR we use Harris Benedict Equation and we have to take into consideration the height, weight, age etc of a person.

2)SMR (standard metabolic rate): to sustain a given temperature, SMR is the minimum metabolic rate required.
