at your current weight you don't really need to eat back those calories, though if you are hungrier it's fine to do. as you lose weight and get closer to where you want to ultimately be, it's going to be more important to eat those exercise calories back. another thing is how you set up your tracker. if you set it up for the exercise tracker to communicate with the food tracker, then there isn't any exercise included. if you set up your tracker the old way, then your calories burned per week goal is already factored into your ranges. in other words, if you're right at your exercise goal for the week, then those calories have already been included when factoring your ranges. again, when you have a lot of weight to lose, it's not that important to eat them back.

I've been trying to exercise more and I was just wondering if I really need to eat more to makeup for calories burned? I want to continue to loose weight, but I don't want my body to go into starvation mode.
