TDEE stands for Total Daily Energy Expenditure and is a fundamental concept in understanding human energy requirements. It plays a crucial role in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight, as well as supporting overall well-being. TDEE encompasses various factors that influence the total amount of energy an individual expends throughout a day. By comprehending TDEE, we can make informed decisions about our diet, exercise, and lifestyle choices.

The main contributors to your TDEE are your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR), Physical Activity Level (PAL), the Thermic Effect of Food (TEF), and Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis (NEAT).

Determining your TDEE is almost impossible without the help of technology. Fortunately, there are numerous products on the market that have become very effective at accurately estimating TDEE, although it is important to understand they provide estimations, not precise measurements.

Every training block within The Lift League comes with a calculator that uses your TDEE, BMR and PAL to provide estimations for your target macros and caloric intake based on your training goals.
