Yes, "planned exercise" is also factorored in, but it is a much smaller effect; therefore I was asking about the "biggies" to get an estimate.

Isn't activity time also calculated into the suggestions? When I workout more, the suggestions for me go up. When I say I will not workout, they suggested ranges go down.

If you want me to check the calculations, please share your gender, age, height, weight.
If you want, you can e-mail me privately this information and I will check. It still think something is in error. Are you aiming for 2 pounds lost weekly??
thanks
Becky

Don't eat more if you are already full. You could always adjust your activity level. It's important to meet your calorie goals. You can always add a protein shake or Greek yogurt to your diet...good sources of protein, and generally 130+ calories, which will help you get closer to your calorie goal.

Let's first check to make sure you have entered your info correctly.
Perhaps there is just a mess up with pounds vs kilograms used.

To check your settings and restart your program, click above on"
MYTRACKERS, START

In small red letters at the top left side of the screen, click on "account e-mail preferences"
Scroll down and select reset program.
Now go through the start up phase again.
Make sure your height and weight are entered accurately; as well age gender.
make sure you enter correctly your weekly rate of weight loss---(1-2 pounds)

Now report back your calorie level.

2740-3090 is very, very, high! I would double check everything and make sure your figures are correct. Even so, 1000 calories is too low. It is important to eat enough calories to give the body all the nutrients it needs to function. You should try to eat more.

It is important to meet your minimum calorie needs for good health. Eating fewer calories than recommended will not make you lose weight faster, and can lead to nutritional deficiencies. For tips on how to boost your calorie intake, check out this article:
