Welcome to FitDay!
As far as the 1500 calorie consumption calculation (boy that was a tongue twister) that is ultimately calculated by you. It is then tweaked based on the activities that you log, such as sleep, etc. If you feel that number is too high you can always adjust it by going:
Activities > Customize Metabolism > use one of the formulas provided by FitDay OR use a custome baseline.
Many people have lost a lot of weight by consuming 1500 calories a day, 1500 isn't a lot. If anyone thinks they will get as big as a house on 1500 calories a day, they should start weighing everything they consume b/c they, may actually discover that they are consuming more than what they originally thought.
As far as speed, as stated above classic may be faster than 2.0. With either it doesn't take me 5 minutes to upload one meal, no matter how big my meal is or what internet I'm on... even on my phone. I am a premium member though and I believe that premium may run faster than regular membership.
