Logging sleep?
 
So i have a general question about activity logging. I go to the gym 6x/week and use the calories burnt on the machines to enter into my activity log here. So thats generally pretty accurate, but I was wondering if I should be logging my 8 hours of sleep per night in my activity log. I notice when I do log it my burnt calories for the day go down by about 400-500 (meaning I should be creating a larger deficit).

Any thoughts on this? :)

How would you log sleeping? It seems even less exertion than being totally sedentary.

I've touched on this many times. FD states that sleep is factored into the equation, however, I find that when I log sleep it looks more accurate. Many others have said the same thing so when I'm logging I do log my sleep.

Exactly, that's why I log it.

Thats what I was thinking too, it looks more accurate when I add sleep in (whether FD factors it in or not), mind you it makes me realize I have a couple hundred extra calories I can most likely play around with on days I have the munchies :p

Thanks for the info :)

Same here, I log my sleep as well.

It is an entry you can choose from the activities list.

When I enter it, my calories burned for the day goes down (as the OP said), thus reflecting less exertion.
