No, you don't eat back your calories. You set up your fitness goals to reflect the amount of exercise you are doing, and Sparkpeople adjusts your range accordingly.

If you set your exercise goal to burn a certain amount of calories, your recommended caloric intake will adjust so that you get enough calories while still having enough of a deficit to lose weight.

Hello, I have been tracking my food on the spark people meal tracker but I am wondering if the amount of calories I burn from a workout is subtracted from my calorie intake? For example, if I had eaten my 1300 calories for the day but then did a workout which burned 500 calories, does that mean I can eat 500 more calories? I am just wondering because I don't want to be overeating or under-eating.

Thanks!
-JJ
