Thank you Reyningsunshine! I am a newbie and did not realize that....I changed them once by switching my goal date, but did not realize that it automatically changed them as I tracked my food and weight.

So, if I increase exercise will it automatically adjust my caloric needs as well?

If you track your weight in the home page here on spark, it'll adjust your calorie range for you.

Adjust calories as often as you feel the need to. I would say after 5% of weight loss you should be looking to see if calories need to be adjusted. Or you could just not worry about it until results start to slow or stall.

Change when you are not seeing results.

If your exercise stays the same, when do you adjust your caloric requirements? After, 5lbs lost?. 10lbs lost?

Thank you
