You probably did not do anything wrong.
Remember that our lowest range for females is 1200-1550. Nothing lower.
Most often a member will select a weight loss goal of 2 pounds weekly. This equals 7000 calories. Even burning those extra 1000 calories through planned exercise, does not put you over the 1200-1550 range for calorie needs.

I switched my fitness goal to 1000 calories to burn a week, which is around what I put in this week. It didn't change my nutrition goal. Did I do something or is my nutrition goal staying the same because of my age and height (21, 5'0)?

Sealiongirl, that could be because your goal date is too aggressive. Try pushing it out further and see what that does to your calorie range.

I'm having trouble with this as well. I updated my exercise goal but it's still giving me a range of 1200-1550. Somehow I don't think that's enough with 2 days a week of strength training, 2 interval cardio days, and one distance day.

Do update your calories burned based on your new workout plan. Let us know if you need the steps to do this.
The calorie range, may or maynot change.
If you find yourself more hungry---do eat at the upper end of the range.

Definitely adjust your exercise calorie goal. Without enough food to support our exercise, our bodies will hold on to what it has and weight loss will stall.

My fitness plan right now running every other day, strength training and walking twice a week, and the 30 day shred every day. It's only Thursday and I've nearly doubled my calories to burn this week. Should I make an adjustment or simply eat towards the upper edge of my calorie range?
