How do I find out my TDEE?
How TDEE Is Calculated. Your Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE) is an estimation of how many calories you burn per day when exercise is taken into account. It is calculated by first figuring out your Basal Metabolic Rate, then multiplying that value by an activity multiplier.
Should I eat my TDEE to lose weight?
Once you know your BMR and TDEE, all you need to do is make sure your caloric intake is less than that number! So if your TDEE ends up being 2,200 calories per day, you need to eat fewer calories to achieve “weight loss“. Most dieticians recommend eating a deficit of anywhere between 500-1,000 calories a day.
How do I calculate my TDEE BMR?
Now that you know your BMR, you can calculate your TDEE by multiplying you BMR by your activity level. Extra active = BMR x 1.9 (hard exercise 2 or more times per day, or training for marathon, or triathlon, etc.
Does fitbit calculate TDEE?

Is TDEE calculator accurate?

How many calories a day do you burn doing nothing?
If we do the math, you should get a resting metabolic rate of 1,499.365. That means a 40-year-old woman who does nothing all day would still burn almost 1,500 calories a day doing nothing beyond just existing. If that number seems high, just compare it to the government’s recommendations for daily calorie intake.
What if I eat less than my TDEE?
Theoretically, any amount that is less than your normal TDEE can cause you to lose weight; it just depends on how quickly you want to see results. A lot of resources will tell you that you need to subtract 500 calories from your diet each day to lose one pound of fat per week.

What is a BMR score?
BMR Score is a calculation which illustrates how your BMR compares to people of a similar demographic; Age, Height, Gender etc. The score takes in consideration your age and gender and gives an indication of your metabolism. Increasing your BMR Score through exercise will decrease your metabolic age.
Should I eat less than my BMR to lose weight?
Since BMR represents the minimal calorie number you need for involuntary body functions, you shouldn’t consume fewer calories than your BMR. To lose weight properly, you need to consider both physical activity and your BMR.
Why are TDEE calculators so different?
That is, the more lean mass you have, the more calories you tend to burn. But then, movement can add to your daily calorie expenditure too. Thus, the more you move, the higher your TDEE. And so, our calorie calculator uses the Katch-McArdle activity multiplier (scaled from 1.2-1.9).
