Yup, that's supposed to be there. It is your "basal metabolism"--what you burn in 24 hours if you don't do any extra exercise. Some activities can lower this number. For instance, I add 8 hours of sleep to bring mine down a bit--some folks believe that the FitDay estimate of basal metabolism is a bit optomistic. Really, you'll have to experiment and see how your actual weight loss (due to whatever calorie deficeit you choose) corresponds to the calculations.

Regards,
Michael
