The BMR was a little high (200 kcal) for me even after I changed the activity level to the lowest (I work at a computer all day). It used the customization feature after I had established a baseline of calories and weight loss. But the calculated BMR is close for most. I suggest you start with the 2298 number and then re-evaluate after a 2 weeks of tracking intake and weight loss.

When you enter the walking you only need to enter the time after picking the pace. If you want to know the distance (I found it useful calculating my pace) try this web site. It lets you set up a walking route and calculates the distance for you. Running Routes - WalkJogRun
