can someone explain the difference between BMR and TDEE (Total Daily Energy Expenditure) and how they should play into my calorie counting? A little confused.

TDEE is the total energy you actually expend per day which would include exercise, daily activities, etc.... TDEE is what you would most easily base calorie intake off of but you can use BMR and throw on extra calories for daily activities, exercise, etc... since that is how some calcs work.It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.
