Custom activities would be great! I've been using FitDay for a bit over a week, and it's my biggest frustration, trying to figure out how to enter things I do that aren't in the FD lists.

My daily activity settings are at sedentary due to being disabled and using a wheelchair. Fitday automatically calculates my daily calorie usage. When I attempt to add in activities from working out at the gym, for example: biking for 1 hour = 9 miles, Fitday is not showing any calories burned for that activity. Am I doing something wrong?

Finally figured out what I was doing wrong. I was entering the time incorrectly.

Glad you got it--I've entered times incorrectly myself from time to time.

Default Calories burned doing HIIT (running)

Hello, is it possible to add running HIIT for calories burned?

I don't believe it's the same calorie burn as steady state running.

Thank you.

Default customizing activities

I'd like to add to the request for custom activities. I use the sauna regularly to fight my lyme disease, and that burns a lot of calories. I'd like to be able to list it here. Thanks.

Custom activities is a high-action item for the tech team to add once the site update is finished. We know this is a biggie

If you are looking for elliptical, it's not in there. Most use something similar, like stairstepper.

Supposedly the site is working on an upgrade that will allow for the inclusion of custom activities, so you may eventually be able to input this.
