No, it doesn't. It's not automatic. Sparkpeople recommends that you go in and double-check and save your program settings every 10-15 lbs. Do nutrition first, then fitness, sometimes updating nutrition can mess up your fitness goals. Even if there are no changes, that may be enough to trigger a recalculation in your ranges.
Also be aware you may need to adjust your weekly weight loss goals. A good aim is about 3% of your total remaining goal. This is because the less you have to lose, the slower you can lose it! If you're over 200 lbs, 2 lbs a week is doable... it's not possible if you've got 10 lbs to lose. :)

With every 10-15 pounds you lose, you'll want to go into your program setup and update your current weight. The program doesn't automatically adjust your calorie range based on your weigh-ins.
To update your weight, click on the red "Change" link next to your weight loss goal down the left side of your Start page.
Hope that helps,

Hi, I was wondering if the daily calorie intake amount adjusts as you lose weight. Will the range of calories automatically decrease as weight is lost to help keep you in the correct range of calories per day. Thanks!
