No, your food goal is based on your exercise "goal" not your exercise "tracked".

Spark operates on a weekly average, not a day to day basis. So if you planned to burn 700 calories this week, and you burned nothing yesterdy and 200 today, you'd eat within the same range given both yesterday and today, because your weekly average will still be about right (assuming 3-4 sessions of same intensity).

As Heather said, you can manually set how many calories your goal is for each week, so if you're habitually burning more per week than it says in your goal, go ahead and update the goal so that the food is calculated appropriately.

It may or may not change your range depending on your needs, especially since you're alread on the minimum range.

No, it doesn't. You should update your weekly fitness goals if you are doing more than the recommended minimum. You don't subtract your fitness burn from your nutritional intake. You set goals, and your overall range is adjusted. :)

Will my calorie tracker adjuster automatically when I enter an exercise in for the day? I don't think I'm exercising enough at the moment to alter my 1200-1550 range, so I'm not sure. For example, if I didn't exercise one day and then ran 5 miles the next, would my calorie range adjust automatically once I entered the exercise in?
