The best place to get feedback on your exercise routine is your doctor or a certified personal trainer.

You don't need to magically think up how much food to up if you increase exercise.

Just keep your exercise 'goal' realistic. If you exercise more, update the "calories to burn per week" goal. That'll keep your food goal in relationship with how much exercise you're doing.

That makes sense. I saw on the fitness chart also to up your food if you are working out alot? I am not sure I want to do that, I think I will stick with the original plan they gave me. I dont want to mess anything up because I do not know how much to up my food or even go about it LOL

I do cardio everyday during my lunch break at the gym for about 30-40 minutes. I also do a strength training class once a week and zumba 2x's a week. I do more cardio I believe than strength training. Maybe I will try to find some more strength classes. I don't like just working out in a gym with no motivation. Classes keep me addicted and motivated so thats what I do most often. :) Thanks for the advice!

There isn't really a "should" when it comes to fitness.

You "should" do as much as you are safe and comfortable to maintain for a lifetime habit. Then, given how much exercise you actually do, your food recommendations can be expressed as suggestions.

No system can recommend two variables when they each depend on the other. You have to know one of them first to get anywhere.

For best results, generally speaking, get some strength training 2-3 times a week and cardio 3-4 times a week. For both, quality is more important than quantity.

Yes, I saw that but no I was looking more as to find out if I should be doing something different. Like I am doing alot of cardio but should I be doing strength also in addition to lose weight or am I doing too much? Just wanted to get a heads up on what I should do or am I doing the right types of things for maximum weight loss.

Not exactly, you can run a fitness report but it doesn't give that kind of feedback.

The fitness reports will show you how much fitness you tracked versus your goal, so you can see where you're falling short, exceeding the goal, etc. Is that kind of what you're looking for?

Is there a way on here that you can do a weekly report for fitness that it will tell you what you are or are not doing and what you should be doing? Kind of like the weekly nutrition report tells you if youre not eating enough protien, etc? New to this site...just trying to find my way around. Thanks!!
