Default A Few Questions...

Hello!
I am nearing the end of week 1 here at FitDay and am already seeing how important of a tool this could be for my fitness. I just have a few questions that I was hoping some of you could answer...

1. I don't really understand the lifestyle part. I mean, at work, I am on my feet for 98% of the shift, but that is only for 8 hours of the day. The other time is usually spent not standing - therefore a different lifestyle. Is there any way to change that? I find that by saying I stand for 23 hours a day, my calories burnt number is way to high.

2. Is it just me or is pop (like Coke or 7 UP) are not options... I can't find them. I know that I should probably just not have them, but in order to be completely accurate (and honest) I can't seem to find them.

3. Is the FitDay premium really worth the upgrade? From users... I would love to hear if it is a big deal or if you can be successful without it.

Thanks in advance,

Jared

You can use one of the other lifestyles like 'mostly seated' or sedentary to get your BMR closer or you can Customize your metabolism from the ACTIVITIES tab (Option on the Left side).

I didn't go look but I believe you can browse for Soda or Cola. You can also create a custom food by using the nutritional data off the back of the can or bottle.

Can't help with this one. I am only a free version user. Seems to be a bit of a ghost town on the forums this week. (I have been absent myself, just because of schedule and the busy time of the year.)

I second the notion of adding a custom food of coca-cola or Sprite (or whatever). The simple act of reading the nutritional information on a package or can tells you how small the portions are (3 servings in a can, for example) so that your can understand how many calories you've eaten of that food.
