An accurate estimation of your total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) is important for developing an effective nutrition and weight management plan. Our TDEE calculator provides a data-driven approach to determining caloric needs.
By inputting values for weight, height, age and activity level, the calculator will output key metrics such as TDEE, basal metabolic rate (BMR), and body mass index (BMI). TDEE represents the total amount of calories expended per day from bodily functions, physical activity, and exercise.
Knowing one’s precise TDEE allows for targeted calorie intake goals aligned with weight loss, weight gain or maintenance objectives. A deficit of 500 calories per day from the calculated TDEE is recommended for safe, sustainable 1-2 lbs per week of fat loss.
