Your TDEE is

TDEE – total daily energy expenditure, or the number of calories you burn each day.

Once you use your BMR to determine your TDEE, you can ensure that the eating plan you are following is in line with your energy expenditure and that you are not eating too many or too few calories.

Being armed with this knowledge, rather than just guessing or blindly following a plan without tailoring it to your individual needs, can make the difference between muscle gain or fat loss.
