It takes your calories burned goal into account, not the amount that you are tracking. Being that you are burning more than your current goal, I would recommend updating your calories burned goal to a number that reflects the average of what you burn in a week. That will then stop giving you that message and your nutrition goals will be correct for your level of activity. This page has info on how to update that goal: www.sparkpeople.com/community/help_answer.

My question is, does the Nutrition tracker take into account the calories you burn by exercise? My fitness tracker gives me a warning message that eating too little can interfere with fitness goals. Right now, my goal appears as about 1150 calories per week but this is Thursday and it shows I've already burned 2045 calories. However, in the Nutrition tracker (I only started tracking it yesterday) it shows that I've been well over my calorie goal both days. This week,though, I've lost about 1/2 pound per day.
