If you don't have those numbers mixed up, it sounds like you either entered something wrong or set too lofty a goal in too short a time period. FitDay calculates your daily calories from your daily burn rate (determined, in part, by current weight and height and activity level), the difference between your current weight and goal weight, and how long you are giving yourself to do it.

Check the accuracy of what you entered. If that's all correct, push your goal date out a few weeks and see if that changes your calories.

And now that you don't have to be perfect, you can be good.
