an untechnical newbie needs help
 
I have searched and searched and can't figure these items out. Your help is really appreciated:
1. It says I burn 2304 cals, I should have a restriction of 896 cals, and should eat 1408 cals, all to reach my goal by 12-31-12. SO if I exercise today for 300 calories-worth, can I then eat 1708 calories AND will FITDAY then add in my exercise and tell me that I can now eat more on some page?
2. IF I lose slower, will FITDAY recognize that and change my calories to less
3. I know how to use the food log and exercise log, but what page or report will really help you know what you should be eating/doing each day? thanks

I don't think so. I added in my exercise and my calorie budget didn't change. But I do know the number my calorie deficit should be, to meet my goal, so I just make sure I hit that deficit every day.

I'm not completely sure. It may do so, if you update your weight frequently. I'm sorry; I use Classic, so maybe someone who has had this happen using 2.0 can chime in.

It should show you on your dashboard. It shows the amount of calorie deficit you need to have each day in order to reach your goal by the date desired. It calculates the number of calories you burn with just daily activities and then you add in your exercise. As I mentioned before, I pay attention only to the deficit number; it's easier for me that day. That means the days I exercise more, I can eat a little more, and the days I exercise less, I eat less (in a perfect world)!

Thanks cjjohnson728. I have the free version of Fitday, where can I find this DASHBOARD. I see no tab saying "Dashboard." Thanks so much for helping.

Are you using FitDay 2.0 or Classic? If you recently signed up, it should be 2.0 unless you changed it, I think.

Classic does not have a dashboard, but in FitDay 2.0, it is on the home page. Click on the Home tab at the top and look down to the left; you should see a tab marked Dashboard.
