I agree with the previous post. I have to be careful not to say to myself that I exercised so why can't I have that extra biscuit? I have to remember that I should stay within my caloric range. Have a great day! God bless

What you burn during your workout regimen should be factored into your nutrition goal already - provided your weekly "calories to burn" is accurate.
If the weekly burn goal the site estimates isn't close to what you're actually tracking, change it. You can manually set it.
With the weekly burn goal being roughly accurate, your food range already accounts for that and you do not add those calories burned into that day and eat them back.

Hi everyone! My name is Melaney and I am a newbie on here. I was wondering if anyone could answer a question for me. I have always been confused about calorie intake (example, this website says that I should be taking in 1400-1800 calories a day). I workout almost everyday. Three days a week my regiment is 30-60 minutes of vigorous cardio. The other three days is usually 30 minutes of medium to vigorous cardio with 20-25 minutes of whole body strength training. Because of my workout regiment, (most workouts burn 400-500 calories) should I be eating more than the 1800? Some websites have shown that those workout calories burned is supposed to create a surplus of calories for that day (ie, if I am supposed to eat 1800 my 400 calories burned means I am to eat 2200 that day). I need clarity on this because I wanna kick these last 40-50 pounds for good! Thanks :)
