I calculated my BEE (basal energy expenditure) at 1765 Kcal and my maintenance Kcals at 2118. Do i add the two together to come up with needed intake for the day, or do i use the maintenance calories as my goal?
You mean "Harris and Benedict".bob wrote:The Harrison- Benedict caculator.
Yes this just calculates the BMR. You then have to add activity calories. The Harris Benedict Equation uses a multiplier or "activity factor" according to how active you are.
BEE and BMR mean the same thing.
BMR = basal metabolic rate
BEE = basal energy expenditure
