I KNOW the BMR on FitDay is way too high for me, so I'm just playing around and seeing what works.
Yes, I think the BMR here seems to be a little bit too good to be true :-) On the other hand...when I exercise for an hour with something, say running or biking they estimate quite a low number compared to other sites where I can calculate how much Ive lost due to my weight, gender and so on. Itīs a differance in more than 200 kcal sometimes. Anyone else notised the same?
