Calorie budget inaccurate
 
Weight Goal > Progress > Calorie Budget seems to come up with completely random numbers. I've cleared my food and actitivies, but the "Calorie Budget" numbers remain the same. I even log off the system, log back in, make SURE the cleared info is still clear - and the Calorie Budget is STILL the same. Is this a bug in the system?

Thanks.

It's an average of the whole period since you started, compared to where you need to go. Why do you think it gives random numbers? It looks right to me?

Thanks!
 
Aha! Thanks vsabino. That makes perfect sense. The reason it looked random to me is that I never thought of averaging the daily figures.

Ok, I went back and averaged it with a calculator. I started 4 days ago. Here were my calories burned:
Day 1: 5737, day 2: 3985, Day 3: 3933, Day 4 (today so far): 3523.
Add that together it comes to 16,678. Divide that by 4 you get 4169.5. My "Progress > Calorie Budget" shows 3676 right now. Where did 3676 come from?

Sorry to be a pain, but I'm just not getting it.

Thanks so much for your help.

I am having the same issue. My total calories burned in Activities = 2336, but in Weight Goal > Progress > Calorie Budget it shows the actual calories burned = 2056. Shouldn't these 2 values be the same?

I put a request in to see what the issue could be. :)

Ijust joined today and im having the same issue! Was just about to post on it til i saw this thread...in the calorie budget, my actual calories burned doesnt change no matter what activity i put in....it shows in the activities tab but not in the calories budget.

Calorie budget default
 
I also noticed that my Calorie Balance under the Weight Goal tab did not match my calories burned under my Foods tab. I found out that the number there is actually just a default value and you have to enter in the calories you actually burn using the Customize button.
Let me know if this helps.

Hey Jeff,
If you are looking at the overview page for calories burned/calorie balance over time under the 'week' view then the system will automatically calculate the week using their default calorie value for the 3 days you did not enter Activities.:D
I hope this helps.

I've been having the same problem for a few weeks now :) It doesn't change the number if I look at week, two weeks, past month, etc. -- it just shows whatever I did today (on the overview tab). I'm pretty sure this is a bug.
