Actually protein needs are based more on body size, rather than calories consumed.

A recreational exerciser needs abut .5 - .7 grams protein/ pound body weight

A strength training athlete needs about .5 - .8 grams protein/pound body weight

Spark does not do that.... but you can do that yourself!

Why don't my carbs, fat and protein calories adjust the same way the calories do when I add in my calories burned from workouts? I'm just curious. If I'm weight training an hour a day I would think that my protein grams would go up to help with repairing muscle. Any thoughts???
