Calculating Total Daily Energy Expenditure (TDEE)
TDEE = BMR x Activity Level Multiplier
BMR = (height in centimeters x 6.25) + (weight in kilograms x 9.99) – (age x 4.92) + 5 for males
and = (height in centimetres x 6.25) + (weight in kilograms x 9.99) – (age x 4.92) – 161 in case of females.
Activity level multiplier varies as below:
Sedentary (little to no exercise) = 1.1
Lightly Active (light exercise/sports 1-3 days/week) = 1.275
Moderately Active (moderate exercise/sports 3-5 days/week) = 1.35
Very Active (hard exercise/sports 6-7 days a week) = 1.525
Learning by doing
One of the best thing about building a project is we often come across a new problem that we haven’t encountered before. Then we search on Google for a solution and go through some documentation. We then zero in on a solution that elegantly solves the problem. In the process, we learn by doing. This is far more effective than reading a book cover to cover and trying to grasp concepts in isolation.
A project mimics real-world problems to which we have to apply just-in-time (JIT) learning to implement a solution. All good programmers are basically good JIT learners. Nobody knows everything. Get the basics down and the rest you can Google or ask on StackOverflow.
