Calculate my TDEE, I am 220 lbs, 6', male, 35 years old and not active
```

###### Response

To calculate your Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE), you can use the following formula:

TDEE = BMR x Activity Level

Your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) is the number of calories your body needs to function at rest. You can calculate your BMR using the Mifflin-St Jeor equation:

BMR (men) = 10 x weight (kg) + 6.25 x height (cm) – 5 x age (years) + 5

BMR (men) = 10 x 100 kg + 6.25 x 183 cm – 5 x 35 years + 5
= 1000 + 1157.5 – 175 + 5
= 1882.5 calories/day

Next, you need to determine your activity level. Since you said you are not active, you can use the sedentary activity level factor of 1.2. This means that your TDEE would be:

TDEE = 1882.5 calories/day x 1.2
= 2,258 calories/day

This is the number of calories you need to maintain your current weight. If you want to lose weight, you will need to consume fewer calories than this. If you want to gain weight, you will need to consume more calories. Keep in mind that these are just estimates, and your actual TDEE may be different due to various factors such as muscle mass and genetics. It is always a good idea to consult a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian for personalized nutrition advice.

It seems that ChatGPT does not calculate the numbers properly or does not have a calculator 🙂 just make sure the numbers are correct.

The next step is to calculate your calorie deficit based on the TDEE. Use the next prompt to get your calorie deficit plan.

###### Prompt
```				```
What calorie deficit do I need based on the provided TDEE?
```
```
###### Response

To lose weight, you will need to create a calorie deficit by consuming fewer calories than your body needs. The amount of calorie deficit you need depends on your weight loss goals and how quickly you want to achieve them.

A safe and sustainable rate of weight loss is generally considered to be about 0.5-2 pounds (0.2-0.9 kg) per week. This can be achieved by creating a calorie deficit of 500-1000 calories per day. For example, if your TDEE is 2,258 calories per day, you could aim to consume 1,258-1,758 calories per day to lose 0.5-1 pound per week.

It’s important to note that calorie needs are individual and can vary based on factors such as age, sex, weight, height, body composition, and activity level. It is always a good idea to consult a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian for personalized nutrition advice. They can help you determine the right calorie deficit for your specific needs and goals.
