Not from exercise that you enter, but from your goal. If your weekly calories burned goal doesn't line up with what you're actually tracking, change the goal and manually set it to be more realistic. The calories burned per week is used in the food equation.

Here is how Spark calculates your range:

exactly how does the excercise factor in? like you enter your excercise and stuff adjusts automatically?

Your calorie range is based on your current weight, goal weight, how long you've given yourself to lose the weight and how much exercise you're doing. The stages have more to do with establishing healthy habits and building on those habits as you go through them.

Hope that helps,

Does the amount of calories you can eat change in stage two? I dont really understand what the difference in stages is. If you stay in the first one will you still meet your weight loss goal if your hitting your calories?
