Welcome to everyone!
What is the CALORIE BURNED bar graph? I mean the number is huge and i dont really get where it came from and what it exactly mean. so if anyone could explain please?
Hey Ullianna, The yellow bar (calories burned) is pretty much a combination of 2 things: 1) how many calories you burn by your lifestyle (you can look on your Profile to set your lifestyle - sedentary, moderate, etc.) and 2) and your activity. Basically, it's FitDay's calculation of how many calories you burn just by living plus whatever activities you log in. In my opinion, FitDay's estimate of lifestyle caloric burning is too high, so I keep mine on 'sedentary' (even though I'm not). If you want to find out more, just do a Google search for "BMR" (basal metabolic rate) to find some calculators to find out how many calories you burn throughout the day at certain 'lifestyle' levels. You can include your age and other factors, too, using these calculators. An easy and mostly accurate way to determine how many calories you need to eat to maintain your current weight at a sedentary lifestyle is to multiply your weight by 10. So, let's say I weigh 240 - my BMR, using the simplified version, is 2400 calories.
As far as contacting admin, I'm not sure. I do know that there are many very helpful and friendly folks on the site, so don't be afraid to ask questions on the forums.
Grats on your loss, Skinnymamajo! I agree with you that logging activities is a pain on FitDay. It's not a perfect system. I use the weight loss program on the treadmill 35min a day, and I know I'm burning around 200cal every time, but FitDay likes to think I only burn 130, because it has no means of including inclines and different speeds, etc. But I take it with a grain of salt.
