TDEE

Total Daily Energy Expenditure – TDEE This is basically how many calories you burn in a day.   This is so important to understand, I feel that once I understood how my energy (calories) was expended I understood how I could minipulate it for my goals.  I didn’t have to ridigidley count my calories thatContinue reading “TDEE”

It is ingrained in us from an early age that when we get older we should drink alcohol, it’s what makesContinue reading “Myth busting”
