Smile Calulating Cal Def...

When I go under Weight Goal Cal Bal, it says that I burn 2940 Cals.
When I go under Activities, it says Life Style is 2736 plus burned 650 running and 438 biking for a total of 3823.....

Why is this off over a 1000 cals?

This is beside the fact that I don't burn 2736 cals a day living.... more like 1800.

Love the program, been using it for 12 years, but have never been able to make this part do what I want it to do, when I customize it it's better but it is an average it seems... so if I do the same stuff every day its ok but not if I take a day off...

The Wieght Goal Cal Bal should pick up my activities... Help please! What am I misunderstanding??

yes, I noticed that a while back as well for the weight cal goal. I reported it to admin, I haven't gotten word of when or if it'll be fixed.

What do you have your lifestyle set as in activities? I find mine to be accurate once i add in sleep.

Question More rambling....

Ah, sleep, I'd have never thought of that! I have my activity level now set to highly active, and notice that it works out right per se if I am doing workouts and cardio as to my intake/burn ratio....

But it seems to me that it should not inflate my daily burn rate, that my daily exercise should be added to my daily burn (metab)....

It should change from day to day depending on what I do, if I'm inactive it should be lower, active higher..

What I'd like to see under the Weight Goal is:

1) My Starting Weight - My Current Weight - My Goal

2) Under BMI - Your BMI (at start) and My current BMI then my Goal BMI, right now I'd have no idea what my current BMI is on that page...

3) Under Calorie Balance, the Calories you burn if fine so long as is... but there should be an added Calories Burned in Activities today, then Cal Restr = Calories you can eat... Then I'd get the picture I want...

I know, wishes are wishes, but I've been wanting this for the whole 12 years I've been using FitDay!!!

Thanks for listening!! lol

as far as lifestyle setting, I suggest setting it for what you day looks like if you don't exercise. What is your job or "lifestyle" like. Then add in exercises. You are right, it should (and does, if you do it like I suggested) change day by day for active and non active days.

Default Somtimes a little knowledge is dangerous!!

Thanks Mike!

I set it custom to what I know I stay even on, which is 1800 cals a day if I just live.

Since then on top of living I'll be doing my 2 hours of biking and walking we'll see how it tracks! I hope you are right that it does incorperate the exercise in the Cal Bal.... thanks again!

Carl
