Total Daily Energy Expenditure – TDEE
This is basically how many calories you burn in a day.
This is so important to understand, I feel that once I understood how my energy (calories) was expended I understood how I could minipulate it for my goals. I didn’t have to ridigidley count my calories that I was eating if I didn’t want to, instead I focused on small changes away from counting calories and focus on upping my activity and food choices.
