Hi Carolynn,

Thanks for the info.

So, you SUBTRACT your sleep from the recommended calories?
For example, I went into 'add activity' and entered 7 hours sleep (an additional 400 calories), but that counted it as an activity so it INcreased my daily expenditure, not subtracted.

The program told me that if I want to lose weight by my entered date and goal weight, with the mostly seated / some acvitity setting, I should eat 1800 calories. So that's the weight loss, not maintenance. Are you saying to subtract sleep from this, and actually just eat 1400 cal? Seems too low somehow?

Thanks for your help.
