If I swim for an hour, why does my lifestyle calories change, and less calories burned from swimming are added to my net calories? Confusing!

Because fitday has you "seated, little movement" when you log that you exercise say for 30 minutes fitday minuses the seated calories you would have burned then adds the 30 minutes you put in as calories burned from your exercise. I'm not a good writer so I hope you understand what I am saying
