Thanks for your responses. I think that you've echoed what I was thinking. I did reset the exercise and ended up with a different calorie range. I can eat at either end of the range depending on the day.

Every person is different and you need to listen to your own body. Personally I find that on days that I exercise I need to eat more calories than days I don't, mainly because of the energy expenditure. However, you shouldn't eat more just to meet some kind of criteria.

I would also say that in general you don't need to eat more on the days when you exercise. Calories in/calories out doesn't compute exactly on a day-to-day basic but more over time. If you're hungrier when you exercise, eat at the higher end of your range.

Yes, that's right. :) If you're adding more exercise, then make sure your fitness goals reflect that.

I just reset my exercise goals to reflect increase in exercise. Does that sound like the right thing to do?

Your calorie range is based on your estimate of calories burned from exercise for the whole week, so that range applies every day, whether you work out or not.

Several days a week I exercise in the morning and then take a Zumba class in the evening. If my calories are set for the days I don't take Zumba, should I eat more on the days that I exercise more? I was at a stand-still weight-wise for several months and finally stated losing again. I don't want to sabotage it by not eating enough. Any suggestions would be helpful.
