Our expert says:
Calorie total = calorie income vs. calorie expenditure
A dietician will be able to adequately advise on how much calories you having (eating) and this is also on the back of all items purchased. In some cases, its difficult to measure calorie income when you have cooked foods or items which have been combined and cooked.
Regarding calorie expenditure, which also relates to EE (Energy expenditure), this depends on 2 things:
1. Intensity of training
2. Time of training
The harder and longer you train, the more calories you burn
The easy and shorter you train, the less calories you burn
To get an accurate indication, I would advise to get a calorie counter/watch as this would be accurate instead of calculating BMR all the time. This will also be dependent on your metabolic rate! The counter takes this into account as well.
