Now my FitDay average for the last month has me at about 1865 calories a day, and I work out 3-4 times a week doing cardio, shooting hoops, and weights. In theory, weight should be falling off me and it's not, and I don't know why. I also don't understand the "calories burned" vs. "calories eaten". I guess that's two questions. Sorry. If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it. Oh, also if this is helpful, my ratios of carb/fats/protein are 44/33/22. I just turned 48.
Have you tried measurement? (Your waist etc.)
You might be building muscles and burn fat. (Muscles weigh more than fat, after all)
