I am fairly active with 2 kids and a house to take care of but I find it hard to believe that I am burning 2800 calories just by being myself (meaning without exercise). Is that possible?? Is there a way to change that? BTW, I do workout but that number is without including my that. Thanks!!
Some do consider FitDay's calorie burn (basal metabolism) estimate to be optomistic. You can always choose a more "sedate" lifestyle to get the number down. You can also do what I do, add 8 more hours of sleep.
Don't know what your weight/height/age is, but I am around 5'10", just under 300 lbs. and use "seated with some movement" as a lifestyle and am right around 3000 calorie burn.
