What is TEE?

Your TEE (Total Energy Expenditure) is the number of calories you burn in a typical day. If your TEE is higher than the number of calories you take in each day, then you'll continue to lose weight. If your TEE is lower than the calories you take in, you will gain weight. To sustain an optimal weight, your TEE and the calories you take in each day should be the same amount. We make it easy to calculate your TEE with our TEE Calculator. 

You simply enter your weight, height, age, and activity level, and it will tell you how many calories you need to consume a day to sustain your healthy weight. Once calculated, we recommend you round down if needed to the closest meal plan. 

For example, if your TEE is 1,855 calories, you should start with the 1,800 calorie Optimal Health 3 & 3 Plan. If you feel hungry or continue to lose weight, increase your calorie intake to 1,900 calories.
