    Question Calculating my Total Calories Expenditure

    So, I wondered how much variation in my estimated TDEE Calculator there would be with the different online calculators that are available. I used the following:

    Female, age 53, weight 87.5 kg, height 165cm (5ft5), Sedentary

    Preferably, the results varied from website to website and I can't think of what to do now ?

    What are your exact goals for the weight loss?

    Also, are you tracking your exact calories expenditure and consumption.

    No, I haven't thought about that so much. I read somewhere that Calorie's are key to weight loss, if you are not in a calorie deficit you will not lose weight.

    But I am not sure where to start.

    that's 100% true. everyone claims that the key to weight loss is cardio which does have its place but that statement is incorrect. 1 pound of fat is 3500 calories so you would need to have a deficit of 3500 calories over any period of time to have lost 1 pound. lean muscle mass is continually burning calories. so someone with enough lean muscle mass can be burning the same amount of calories sitting still as another person can on the treadmill. that's why people with more muscle need to eat more to maintain their size. therefore, you should definitely throw weight training into your routine as well.
