Talking Newbie Question(s)

Hello,
I'm Cat- just restarted the whole back in shape process for the I don't know how many time (pregnancies, jobs, life have been cause for deprioritization), but I think I finall have things under control to dedicate the right committment level and finally see long term success.

I did have a quick question- what are lifestyle calories? Because I was shocked to see how many calories were "recommended". Don't get me wrong, when it put in my weight loss goals, it gave me another target calorie count- but I find that other number kind of annoying since it appears everywhere, but the target is really only on the dashboard and a couple other places. I was just curious how I should be using that piece of information since I kind of felt like the only thing relevant at this point is the target for weight loss and burned.

Anyway- excited to get this show on the road and hoping I make it longer than 6 weeks since it will likely take 5-6 months to get to the end game.

Here's hopin and happy holidays!

Welcome!
Lifestyle calories are your Base Metabolic Rate(BMR) or the amount of calories your body burns as calculated by FITDAY based on the activity level you choose (sedentary, etc...) when you set up your profile. Many people find this to be accurate, many others find that logging sleep as an activity makes the number more accurate.
