Our body is constantly building, repairing and regulating cells, whether we exercise or not.
So our bodies are taking care of itself.
I'm a male, 5'6 tall and I weigh 74 KGs,
I have a desk job, but I exercise 2-3 times a week(light running, push-ups and basic dum bell workout).
I want to know approximately, how many Calories does the human body naturally burn per day?,
just for maintenance and keeping us alive?
Eg. If the body burns 1500 calories a day irrespective of what I do -
100(breakfast) + 500(lunch) + 400(dinner) - 1500(default) - 200(light exercise)
= -700 ie. calorie deficit
I want to be in a calorie deficit,
so I can plan how much calorie intake should I take and yet rely on the body to at least not get me fat, even if I happen to skip a workout
