TDEE stands for Total Daily Energy Expenditure, which refers to the number of calories you burn in a day through various activities, including resting metabolism, digestion, and physical activity. Your TDEE is influenced by various factors such as age, gender, body composition, activity level, and metabolic rate. To calculate your TDEE, you can use a formula that takes into account your basal metabolic rate (BMR), which is the number of calories your body burns at rest, and your activity level. The most common formula for calculating TDEE is the Harris-Benedict equation, which takes into account your age, gender, weight, and height. Once you have calculated your TDEE, you can use this number to determine your daily calorie needs. If you want to maintain your current weight, you would consume the same number of calories as your TDEE. If you want to lose weight, you would consume fewer calories than your TDEE, and if you want to gain weight, you would consume more calories than your TDEE.
Knowing your TDEE can help you determine how many calories you need to consume each day to maintain, lose, or gain weight.
TDEE is calculated by taking into account your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), which is the amount of energy your body needs to function at rest, and multiplying it by an activity factor that reflects your level of physical activity.
TDEE is affected by several factors, including age, gender, weight, height, body composition, and activity level.
TDEE calculators can provide a good estimate of your daily calorie needs, but they may not be 100% accurate due to individual variations in metabolism and activity levels.
To lose weight, you need to consume fewer calories than your TDEE; to gain weight, you need to consume more calories than your TDEE; to maintain your weight, you need to consume roughly the same number of calories as your TDEE.
