The reality is that since sparkpeople automatically linked people's nutrition and fitness tracker, this question comes up at least once a day, so you are not alone in your confusion.

lol....for future reference, I'm just gonna bookmark this so I do not have to keep combing though prior thread to find it.

This links to something, which links to something (on this same subject):

I wish sparkpeople either fixed this, or put an explanation on how the calories are being figured out. Already.

The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.

I think a lot would depend on how fast you are losing. If you are dropping a lot of weight quickly, then yes, I WOULD eat up to 50% of the exercise calories (just goo up in small increments until the weight-loss is 1-2lb per week. If the weight-loss is slow, then I would just continue with doing what you are already.

If you're losing weight - should you at back calories?

My range with no exercise 1200-1570

Exercise 400-600

Should I eat back the calories to make it to 1570?
