Sure. When I started, the range was about 1200-1550, which I assume was the lowest.

This week, it the calorie range is about 1380-1700. Generally, I have been consuming about 1450 in calories a day; with some higher, and a few lower.

I changed by; fitness goals, first to very low, then none - thinking the nutrition tracker would go back to the lower range,but it's remained at the higher range.

Thanks for your input and suggestion.

Your calorie range will not change, unless you change something with your program set up.
Like you entered your fitness plan, you changed your weekly weight loss goal, etc.

I suggest you stay with your current calorie range. Can you share the level?

Hello all!

I have a question about the nutrition tracker, and calorie allocations. I've been at this for about two weeks, and have lost about 6 lbs. I had the goal setter set to lose 2 lbs a week, with little to no exercise. To be honest, I am reluctant to commit to an exercise plan ... but, in my enthusiasm, I worked out more than expected, and tracked the workouts, but didn't change anything in the goals.

I know the rate of weight loss is more than ideal, BUT, I was also pms'ing / retaining water, and have a lot to lose, so I figured that weight loss would likely slow down.

Also, I"ll be travelling for the next couple of weeks, and was concerned about getting work outs in, so I have not changed my fitness - it's still set at very little exercise.

All that background leads to my concern and question: the nurtriition tracker has increased my calorie range. Is this because I lost at too fast a rate in these initial weeks? or is it based on the exercise I actually recorded (more than expected), instead of my currently set goal (with no exercise)? I think for the next couple of weeks, I'd like to stay at the lower range, but I don't want to slow metabolism or impair my long term progress -- should I be eating more at a lower weight?

I hope that wasn't confusing; I've looked around the site and didn't find quite the answer, and would appreciate any information or suggestions. Thanks for reading!
