  • I have worked out my TDEE and my recommended calorie intake on fasting days is 553cals Can anyone tell me what would be an acceptable upper error limit for this figure considering that information on calories in anything is probably a best estimate and will vary slightly according to the source of the info. Would an upper error limit of say +10% be OK?

    Calorie counting is based on rather inaccurate tables, and cooking method is usually not taken into consideration.

    I would not say +10% is okay, especially if you have cooked meals (instead of raw food), but 100% accuracy is not possible, in my opinion.

    Hi I’m a newbie – what is TDEE? Thanks 😀

    click on the How? tab above and all will be revealed 🙂

    Thanks Humphrey!
