Ok, so once again I need my spark peeps to explain something to me! I am currently exercising daily, predominantly the gym on M-W-F and usually Saturdays too! And only walking on T-TH and Sunday. But when I add any additional exercise (like today, because I stuffed myself full of 1,066 calories at the buffet - even though it was lunch AND dinner) to my regular fitness tracker, it gives me the following message.
"The number of calories you should eat to manage your weight depends on many factors, including how many calories you burn through exercise. It may seem counterintuitive, but eating too little while burning too much can actually hurt your weight-management goals and the outcome of your fitness program. If you are consistently burning more calories than recommended here, please update your fitness settings as soon as possible. This may adjust your calorie ranges (if necessary) so you can reach your goals in a timely and healthy manner."
Problem is, I cannot change my calorie intake it is set automatically by current weight and goal to lose! I only burned 683 calories in fitness today but I ate 1,523 (27 calories under my suggested range) ?? I am totally confused! :/ If I could update my calories needed based on calories burned, I would. Anybody know what the problem is here? I DO NOT want to do less exercise. :( I am trying to get fit and train for the upcoming 5K. Help!
