Theresa (BABCIATEA),
I see that the question of what the letters TDEE stand for has already been answered.

This is one half of yet another acronym, CICO.

CICO = Calories In, Calories Out, and the TDEE is the calories out part. But I want to add that if one has a weight loss goal, lower and lower calories to speed weight loss is in my opinion not the best thing. Sort of like more and more exercise to burn more and more calories is also not the best thing either. At some point more exercise can induce other problems, sore joints which take longer to recover, or sore muscles, or ..

Likewise fewer and fewer calories at some point induces other changes, at least I think so. Perhaps less energy lost via body heat, perhaps less energy lost due to inefficient body movements. I ran out of energy late yesterday when doing yard work, just as I quit my wife sent me to look for a pressure washer. I walked around looking for it, in the various places it might be, .. the basement, the garage, the shed ... very lethargic, slow efficient movements. After supper (steak and salad) I was fine.

Total daily energy expenditure. In other words how many calories you burn in a day just for your bodily functions to happen.
