FitDay only does the math calculation, no matter how much sense it makes. It doesn't guarantee that it's safe or makes sense; it's purely based on how much you tell it you want to lose and how long you tell it you want it to take.

To lose more than two pounds a week, you would have to be a calorie deficit of greater than 1000 calories per day. That's hard to do when you're only burning 1600-1800 to begin with.

If you move your goal date out a bit, you will probably see a more reasonable number of calories you can eat.
I just went in to 2.0 to see if I can figure it out but like you said, it probably has to do with the amount of weight to lose in such a short period of time.

ON EDIT: Yep that looks like it's exactly what it is.

says.candy, either you have your metabolism (activity under profile) set wrong or you are getting the "dangerous" amount of calories because your goal may be considered "dangerous". That is a lofty goal for such a short period of time, and trying to do it through the holidays won't make it any easier... at least it wouldn't for me.
