I was wanting some advice around calculating my TDEE and the variation between the different methods.
Height: 172 cm
Weight: 93.5 Kgs
Body fat estimation: 28% (based on US NAVY method)
Activity Level: Sedentary: Light -- have not accounted for exercise and training here (this is what I read to do in the majority)
I read in a few forum posts that a good pint for fat loss is to aim for calorie intake of around 80% of your TDEE, and then to get you protien intake to around 1 g per lb of lean body mass. I understand all of this, but depending on which method of TDEE calculation I use I get different results.
Mifflin-St Jeor: 2178
So I have a few questions.
1. Which method is the most accurate ? (there is a 150 cal approx 6% variance)
2. Should I average the lot and work on that as my TDEE ?
3. Should I increase my Activity Level to Moderate (in TDEE Calculations to account for exercise) and not concern myself with Calories burnt during exercise?
Thanks in advance,
