If your New Year's resolution is to get fit, you have a great tool on your wrist.

Here's how to put Apple Health's calorie burn metrics to good use.

Many individuals believe that exercise is the most crucial element when beginning a fitness regimen aimed at fat loss.

we will take a look at the resting vs. active calorie burn noted tracked by your device.

Your total daily energy expenditure, or TDEE, is comprised of active and resting energy.

It is important to have a baseline for your TDEE in order to reach your fitness goals.

If you carry your phone or Apple Watch around all day, the sum of your active and resting energy can give you a decently accurate baseline.

Active calorie expenditure occurs during exercise or sustained physical activity like walking, cycling, hiking, playing sports, etc.

Your body takes a ton of energy to keep alive, even at rest, and this is reflected by your BMR.
