Total energy expenditure

Calculate your daily calorie consumptionThis is a very precise metabolic calculator. It calculates your resting metabolic rate and your total energy consumption in calories or kilojoules. This can be a helpful tool for weight loss as it allows you to estimate the amount of calories that represents your energy balance. If you eat less than this, you will lose weight.

 

Instructions:
1. Use the dials until you have entered time spend on sleeping and other activities on a typical day (24 hours).
2. The calculator assumes that all unaccounted time is spend sitting.

Estimate energy expenditureIf you want to increase accuracy of your estimation, you should print this sheet and fill it out hour by hour on a typical day. After that - enter values in to the calculator.

Background

The basal metabolic rate is calculated from the Schofield reference formulas used by WHO including age specific formulas for children. Energy cost of activities are based on various references and because children use relative more energy pr. kg body weight than adults, a dynamic correction is used for children depending on body weight.

At the other end of the scale, obese people tend to have their activity dependent energy expenditure overestimated. Accordingly, a correction factor for body mass indexes over 30 is applied.

In summary: this calculator is reliable for children as well as normal weight and obese adults.

continuously i used to read smaller articles or reviews that
also clear their motive, and that is also happening with this paragraph which I am reading

Magnificent items from you, man. I've understand your stuff prior to and you're just extremely excellent.
I really like what you've bought here, really like what you're stating and the way by which you assert it.
You're making it entertaining and you still take care of to keep it sensible.
I can't wait to learn far more from you. This is really a tremendous site.

Really enjoyed your calculator thanks. I think you're using a MET of about 8 for moderate activity and 12-13 for strenuous, what about if you do 85 minutes of 10 MET (biking 14-16 mph) daily? Thanks

Is the height function part of the calculator broken? It seems to not change the total expenditure amount at all when I change my height, even when I go to 6'6" which seems odd.


Height doesn't matter in terms of total daily energy expenditure, only weight does. A 200 pound female who is 5'0" will burn about the same amount of calories as a 200 pound female who is 6'0". Gender, age and weight all influence TDEE, but height does not.

Best calculator I've found. I'm overly active, I walk about 80,000 steps a day, excersize a few times a week. I needed to get my tdee to make sure I ate enough to keep from undereating. This is the only website I could find that could give me a an accurate estimate.

Correct me if I'm wrong. Wouldn't that be about 32 miles, assuming 2,500 steps per mile.

They did not leave a calculation for work .I also do that during a day....


If you are active at work, I.e. standing/walkin g around, use that dial. But if you have a desk job then it's assuming that you sit and automatically includes it.

Not even close to accurate. Says my BMR is 1900 cals doing nothing all day. I GAIN weight at 1900 cals. So yeah ...

Seconding the request for this to be translated into an app. It's a wonderful estimation tool!
