    TDEE Calculator Accuracy

    Are TDEE calculators really that accurate? According to the calculator Iím currently in a 600- 700 cal deficit. I also do 30 minutes of cardio a day and heavy weight training four times a week. Mind you this the the first real cut Iíve ever done so Iím learning. Only donít lean bulks and recomp. I am four weeks into my cutting cycle which is test and NPP. I wasnít expecting to scale not to move too much because of water retention so I was using the mirror more as my guide. After four weeks It doesnít look like Iíve lost an ounce of fat. Am I in too deep of a deficit so my bodies trying to hold onto fat? iím not losing any strength and my muscle is definitely more full. Do I need a bigger deficit? Below is an example of what a day of eating looks like currently.

    1) granola pre workout
    2) shake (Greek yogurt, banana, almond milk, natural peanut butter, spinach) and 2 hard boiled eggs
    3) lunch - lean turkey, chicken, or tuna with 1 cup rice
    4) Dinner - Lean meat or fish, sweet potatoes, rice, veggies,
    5) cottage cheese.

    Calories around 2,100-2,200
    Protein 190-200 grams
    Carbs 150 grams
    Fat 70 grams

    Re: TDEE Calculator Accuracy

    Ok so whatís the answer then? It sure what Iím doing wrong. A deficit should result in fat loss. When I donít track or when I do I can grow muscle. I just can never get rid of this fat I had left over from a long time ago when Iím as skinny fat. I busted my ass to build muscle but I canít get more than two abs visible. And chest fat remains the same. Itís not a lot it itís extremely frustrating that I canít get rid of it no matter what I do

    Re: TDEE Calculator Accuracy

    Stevesmi is correct. You can't rely on counting calories or running a deficit. Different foods in and of themselves are more energetically expensive to store or use, and lowering your caloric intake in turn slows your metabolism. It is a very complex balancing act and you are likely better served by methods like intermittent fasting.
