Red face Calories allowed plus calories burned

How do I see what amount of calories I can eat during a day with the calories restriction to loose weight and the amount of calories that I burned?

This may be more trouble than it's worth, but here's what I do: figure out first my BMR and subtract the cals necessary to loose a pound a week. That gives me a base of 1870 cals for the day. Then go to the activities page and enter my "planned" activity or activities for the day. That should give me a target of calories I can eat during the day. At the end of the day, I make adjustments in what I actually did and check to make sure my calorie balance is on target. (and resolve to do better tomorrow....)

When the day is done, and you've got all your calories and activites put in the logs, then you can go to the 'Overview' tab. It gives you the calories for the day with pie chart for the macronutrient breakdown. It also gives you (at the bottom, on the right) calories in and calories out (burned). You can see there if you used up more calories than you ate.

These tools may not be absolutely precise (you'd have to be in a lab for that), but they are pretty good indicators. I find that when I'm not using up more than I'm taking in, calories are the reason I am not losing one week. I only weigh once a week because the normal fluctuations you see every day are just too confusing!
