Well, Jerry, there really are no admins that read the forums--just three of us volunteer mods who try to help. I admit that I'm not totally following your question but I'll try to address it:
As I understand it, "Lifestyle" is a 24 hour base. If you add 1 hour of exercise, it adds the difference between your chosen "lifestyle" and the total calorie burn of the exercise. Obviously, you "live" all day long and you only exercise part of it, so "lifestyle" generally exceeds "exercise".
Calorie calculators are notoriously inaccurate and at best are an estimate. Many people, myself included, find that when daily excercise and activities are logged, along with 8 hours of sleep (which the programmers tell us is allready figured in, FWIW) the calculation is pretty well aligned with "real life".
I hope this helps.
