    This should help you. Step 1 to do your BMR, then step 2 will help you with your TDEE

    If you are cutting also be conservative with activity level.

    I WANTED to say high, for myself, as I lift for 45 mintues each day, and I also do 30 minutes of cardio with a 25 pound weighted backpack, BUT the rest of the day I drive a Bus = sedentary.

    So I picked moderate activity.

    I have done it before. And know how to adjust now when my body composition has changed.

    My real question is do u use the same formula for a female? Or does it ask u m/f?

    Good starting maintenance: (LBM x 15)

    1.55 Moderate Activity multiplier IMO gives u too many cals.

    Lol I know how to use this formula. I have used it before. But never on a FEMALE. Hence the thread and question.


    But it's ok. Thanks for all the help

    im not debating that u know how to use the harris/benedict formula for calculating TDEE. my guess is u have to create a much greater deficit than 500cals to get good results. also the harris/benedict formula is inaccurate because it takes into consideration total body weight when calculating TDEE when lean body mass is the only weight u should be using when calculating caloric requirements IMO.

    the activity multiplier associated with either harris/benedict or katch/mcardle (a better although still not good formula IMO) will typically err to the high side of caloric requirements. when i ran katch/mcardle i had to use a 950cal deficit.

    the "moderate" 1.55 multiplier assumes more activity than what is actual IMO. closer would be 1.26 IMO for a typical guy or girl working out.

    no tdee formula is going to be exact and will have to be tweaked but IMO (LBM x 15) will put u closer.

    And yet you still haven't understood the question.

    I am asking if u use the same formula for a woman, female, girl, chick. Lol.

    It's all good I'm going to use it for her either way.

    i understand the question. yes u use the same formula but the harris/benedict tdee calculator is inferior IMO.. for cutting or bulking, or maintenance... i was trying to give u a better formula..

    Lmao, you are right though 405. I would say 95% of people here are cutting.

    Thanks for your input though. My girl is doing the hcg diet . I just let her do that on here own. She did not need to lose weight at all. I purposes a little while ago so she went crazy on losing weight. She is 5-8 135 so didn't really need to lose but was her choice.

    So when she is done we are going to train together and build her some new muscle. Since personally I hate that hcg diet. But was not about to tell her no lol.
