Hi Zilla,
Have you changed your profile weight? I'm not sure, but I think that is where the calculation is made from.

As far as which activity level to use, Micheal is right, it takes some experimentation to figure out what seems to fit your metabolism. I do suggest that you err on the side of less activity, however. I found that even though I sit, jump up, stand, pace, walk from office to lab and around the compound quite a bit, "seated all day" works pretty well for me. I suspect if I added sleep to my activity "seated with some activity" would work too - but that seems like too much work
