Today, so far, without having entered any other activities, it says that I've consumed 839 calories, & burned 2,328. I don't know where this number is coming from.

Any help is appreciated!
That is your burn for 24 hours, including eight hours of "sleep". FitDay adjusts for any extra activities you add (either up or down). Your burn is also affected by your current weight, age and sex. Many of us add in another 8 hours of sleep to bring the burn number closer to what we find in "real life".
