That's easily 2lb/week, which is achievable for obese people. Don't be too disappointed if you don't make that. Taking twice as long is much more realistic.

Thanks so much... think I got it fixed.... and as far as my goals, I have set 40 lbs by mid-june. Currently 190, want to be 150. 5'6". I am good with keeping it at 1200-1550, just wanted to make sure there wasn't something extra I was supposed to do when changing fitness, as it was quite a big increase... 600 per week to 2000 per week. Didn't want to be eating too little and sabotage my goals.

As for your range not changing when you increase fitness goals, that's because you're on the lowest range possible. It might require a significant change in fitness to move off that.

Eg if your maths works out at 1,000 calories a day to lose the weight you want, the site will put you on 1200+, as that's the minimum. Increase fitness by 1400 like you did and that's 200/day, so ... 1200. The minumum. No change.

This usually happens when the goal date is unrealistically close. While we can set a 2lb/week loss rate, that's not achievable for all body sizes.

What is your current weight, goal weight, and target date?

If someone could kindly tell me how to switch my ticker from kg to lbs I would greatly appreciate it as well!

Can someone direct me on how to confirm I am eating in the correct calorie range for a 2lb/week loss... I originally had it set for 600 cals/week by default I guess, but I burn at least 2000/week... would this change what I should eat for calories? Right now it has stayed at 1200-1550 even though I changed my calorie burn to 2000
