Yes, check with your doctor, also most doctors recommend the the Mediterranean eating plan which is rich in vegetables, frutis, nuts and fish. It is good that you are execising. Best wishes.

Do you have a heart rate monitor that tells you how many calories you've burned? If not, you might want to invest in one so that you have a more accurate estimate of how many calories you burn during each workout. Once you know how many calories you burn on a weekly basis, you can manually enter that in fitness setup, and then your nutrition tracker will reflect those changes you made in fitness setup.
And I second asking your doctor more questions, and maybe even seeing a dietitian.
1) find out how many calories you burn in the next 2 weeks, and average out how many you burn per week. Enter that on your start page, and your Nutrition tracker will reset.
2) You really should ask for more specifics from your doctor. Maybe see a dietitian. I eat a lot of meat and vegetable stir fries, but what works for me isn't going to work for you. Make up a list of questions, and make him answer them. That's why you pay him.

1) I just started a high intensity exercise program, Turbo Fire from Beachbody. I have as a calorie goal of no more than 1700 calories. SP says that's not high enough. I can't change my minutes on the exercise because it's different every day. I exercise 15 minutes one day then 20, 30, 40, or 55 minutes on other days. HOW MANY CALORIES SHOULD I EAT??
2) My dr. says I have elevated blood pressure. I have to stay away from starches. Any advice on what I can eat? He says more meat and veggies. Can I still eat oatmeal?
