Track your fitness minutes with the fitness tracker to find out approximately how many calories you've burned (a heart monitor would help you get a more exact count). Your nutrition tracker should help you figure out how many calories you need to consume, but maybe the Report: Daily Calorie Differential would help you answer your questions.
"We provide this report because members like you requested it, but SparkPeople does not recommend focusing on your daily calorie differential. Please use this report with care. Weight loss happens by creating a caloric deficit over time—not in a single day. We don’t necessarily encourage people to eat more on the days they work out or eat less on days they don't exercise. We encourage you to look at your calorie goals (what you eat and what you burn) on a weekly—not daily—basis to notice overall trends."

Hi! Well, I have managed to calculate how many calories I consumed today. I would like to know how many calories I burned and also how many calories I need to consume in a day.
