I just recently joined and started a new program and have "Seated, Some Movement" selected for my Lifestyle Activity. I have no other activities added yet. but under the activities tab, the calories burned is showing 5,649?

"Calories Burned Today 24:00 5,648
Calories Burned: 5,648
Lifestyle: 5,648"

Anyone know why this is?

Its becuase it thinks you are "Seated" for all 24 hours of the log. You should enter how many hours you are sleeping/in bed and that should make things more realistic.

No, you shouldn't have to enter your sleep. The estimations for lifestyle take this into account. Edward18, that does seem like a high number. If you click on the customize link next to your metabolism you can see the formulae we use to compute metabolism. It mostly depends on age, gender, weight and height. That number is possible, but you can check for yourself.
