The study aimed to build standard levels of metabolism during rest for students of the Faculty of Physical Education at the University of Jordan, in addition to determining the differences in metabolism during rest according to the sex variable, and the contribution of body mass to predicting metabolism during rest, the descriptive approach and the statistical packages program were used. For Social Sciences SPSS, the study was conducted on a sample of (200) male and female students, and the averages of age, height, body mass and metabolism during rest were, respectively: for males (21.54 years, 175.98 cm, 70.06 kg, 1698.79 calories/day), and fo females: (20.87). year, 61.37 cm, 57.89 kg, 1322.11 calories/day) and for the sample as a whole: (21.21 years, 168.67 cm, 63.97 kg, 1510.45 calories/day), and the best percentile ranks for metabolism during rest were, respectively: for males (1900 calories/day). And for females: (1450 calories/day), in addition to the existence of a statistically significant difference in metabolism during rest between males and females and in favor of males, it was reached using the regression coefficient (R2) to three prediction equations in measuring metabolism during rest in terms of body mass, which are: - Pain First fair (for males): (RMR) calories/day = (878.700) ((body mass) x (11.706)). (R2) = 0.917. - The second equation (for females): (RMR) calories / y and mA = (619,560) ((body mass) x (12.136)). (R2) = 0.874. - The third equation (for males and females): (RMR) calories / day = (399.138) ((body mass) x (17.371)). (R2) = 0.779. The researcher recommended making use of the criteria that were reached to guide students' nutrition.
