Are we talking about the ancient tracker or last months vs this months tracker, the newest one that varies the amount of calories in the nutrition tracker as you track your fitness.
If you eat according to the recommendation at the bottom of your nutrition tracker and wait until bedtime to track your workout, you could end up needing to eat an elephant for your bedtime snack.
On the other hand, I enter my plans: an hour in the pool in the morning and another hour at night. A mile walk in the morning. A mile walk at night. Then I plan my meals for the day accordingly.
By the time the evening workouts come around, I've eaten all my calories based on my planned workouts. The problem comes with Florida storms. You don't go walking or swimming during thunderstorms. I can walk indoors as a substitute. But I haven't found anything I can do for an hour to give the the equivalent of 600 treading water calories. And having calories left over to eat the next day, or make up the next day doesn't seem to happen.
So why do it?
Tracking my fitness has gotten me out of my recliner and moving a lot. My weight loss has stayed right on target. But I am very concerned now. I haven't gone crazy with the system just to get to eat whatever I want, but I also DO NOT want my progress to stop because of this weird system.
What are we to do? Just ignore the recommended calories? Eat to the recommended calories the day after and ignore what the system is telling us?
And it seems to me, we need to make sure we are properly "fooded" (like hydrated but with nutrients our body needs) prior to strenuous workouts, not afterwards.
I read the information about the new system, But I still don't understand why someone thinks it's better to track daily than to take a possible average of suspected fitness calorie burn.
