I notice when I do log it my burnt calories for the day go down by about 400-500 (meaning I should be creating a larger deficit).

Any thoughts on this?
I've touched on this many times. FD states that sleep is factored into the equation, however, I find that when I log sleep it looks more accurate. Many others have said the same thing so when I'm logging I do log my sleep.

Exactly, that's why I log it.
