Recommended Formulas for Total Energy Expenditure (TEE)
#1: NIH Body Weight Planner
Created by Dr. Kevin Hall, National Institute of Health (NIH)
The   mathematical   model   underlying   the   NIH   Body   Weight   Planner   simulates   how   human   energy   expenditure   and body   composition   dynamically   change   in   response   to   diet   and   physical   activity   interventions.   It   has   been   developed   using the   best   available   science,   peer-reviewed   and   published   in   one   of   the   world’s   leading   medical   journals   The   Lancet ,   and   has been repeatedly validated to give accurate predictions using data that were not used to build the model. In   a   2012   consensus   statement   from   the   American   Society   of   Nutrition,   it   was   recommended   that   practitioners   adopt the   NIH   Body   Weight   Planner   model   and   abandon   the   “3500   calorie   per   pound”   rule   of   thumb   that   has   been   erroneously used to relate weight change and calories. The    NIH    Body    Weight    Planner    has    been    widely    adopted    by    investigators    around    the    world    and    has    been demonstrated    to    provide    more    accurate    predicti o ns    than    competing    tools    such    as    the    “Weight    Loss    Predictor”    from Pennington   Biomedical   Research   Center   which   aimed   to   stimulate    long-term   human   weight-loss   dynamics   in   response   to calorie restriction.

Total   Energy   Expenditure   (TEE)   is   an   estimate   of   an   individual’s   total   energy   expenditure,   or   the   calories   expended   by   one’s   body   in   a   twenty-four hour   period.   While   there   are   multiple   methods   for   calculating   TEE,   we   recommend   using   the   National   Institute   of   Health   (NIH)   Body   Weight Planner.
