Hard to be positive without knowing the details exactly, but the way you put it I think that 1691 is supposed to be your goal calories assuming that you do exercise that much. Also, 2091 sounds like a whole heck of a lot for just about any woman to lose 2 pounds per week on, that's another reason I expect it to be 1691, assuming exercise. (And less if you stop for more than a day or two.)

It's also very similar to my own rough totals when I was both exercising about 400 calories most days and losing about 1.5 pounds per week. So again, I think that's what it means.

I can't discuss other programs, because I do not know what formulas they use.
What does your SP calorie give you for a calorie range???
You can factor in your exercise too.

I was told that I should eat around 1691 calories in order to lose 2 pds. a week. It factored in my age, weight, height, and kind of exercising that is done. I understand that I am suppose to eat around 1691 calorie/daily, but what about when I exercise and burn about 400 calories? Do I still eat my 1691 calories, or do I eat my 1691 calories plus the 400 that I burned? If I don't eat back the 400 calories that I burned, isn't that technically just eating the 1691-400=1291? Can someone please help me understand this because I don't want to end up with complication because that is so close to being under the 1200 calorie recommendation if it is applicable. Thanks.
