# Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE)

In this assignment, I will calculate my Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE). For this purpose, I will calculate my Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) and EIT. The total TDEE will be calculated using the sum of RMR and EIT afterwards.

### RMR Calculation

The RMR rate was calculated using a specially designed setting. The test was conducted in the Human Performance lab. I was sitting on a bench, and various peripherals were attached to me to record measurements. The test measured my body temperature, VO2 level, respiratory quotient, and total calorie consumption per second.

The results of the test calculated my resting metabolic rate to be 1079 with a respiratory quotient of 0.70.

### EIT Calculation

The EIT Calculation was done by averaging the total MET values for three days. The results are as follows:

 Days Activities METs Daily total Day 1 Running four mph (15 min/mile) Sitting quietly and watching television Carpentry, general, light effort Bathing, sitting Sitting on the toilet, eliminating while standing or squatting 6.0 1.3 2.5 1.5 1.8 13.1 Day 2 Basketball, general Bicycling, general Cleaning, sweeping carpets or floors, general Ironing Sitting quietly and watching television Sitting on the toilet, eliminating while standing or squatting 6.5 7.5 3.3 1.8 1.3 1.8 22.2 Day 3 Sitting in church, in service, attending a ceremony, sitting quietly Walking in church Carrying, loading or stacking wood, loading/unloading or carrying lumber, light-to-moderate effort Carpentry, general, light effort Bathing, Sitting 1.3 2.0 3.3 2.5 1.5 10.6 AVERAGE TOTAL = (13.1+22.2+10.6)/3 15.3

DIT= 0.1*RMR+EIT

DIT=0.1*1079+15.3

DIT=109.43

### TDEE

The TDEE can be found in the following values

TDEE =1.375*RMR= 1483

The results found by the test have an inaccuracy chance as the RMR was to be measured by repeated tests. As the test was conducted once, the resulting RMR can be different. Also, the EIT calculated may not be the exact energy consumed per day, and it may vary by up to 10% every day. Therefore, the DIT value and resulting TDEE value may be somewhat inaccurate.

The total EIT factor has the maximum chance of inaccuracy as there can be activities which are consuming energy but are not added to the daily energy expenditure.

To have more accurate results, the RMR value should be calculated by repeated tests, and all activities should be included in the EIT.
