Glad to hear you are not double counting your running.
As long as your calories burned estimate is accurate, we believe the SparkPeople program does accurately adjust your nutrition goals such that you can meet your weight loss or maintenance goals. If you are not comfortable with the generated ranges, you might want to turn off the communication between your Fitness and Nutrition Trackers. You can read more about that Tracker communication in this article:
Spark_Merle, thanks for your reply. The entries you mention are my for my runs. I do enter these in my Fitness Tracker, but I do not wear my FitBit during my runs so I'm not counting y steps twice. Your thoughts would again be appreciated.
I took a look at your Fitness Tracker, and see that on many days you have manually added a walk or run event in addition to the entry that was synced from Fitbit. Assuming you were wearing your Fitbit during those run/walk workouts, then I recommend you should not create a manual entry for them. That is causing your calories burned estimate to be overstated since the Fitbit calories burned already includes those workouts.
If you stop making those extra entries, I think you'll find the recommended nutrition ranges to be more reasonable.
I hope that makes sense. Let me know if you have questions.
When I combine my Food Tracker and my Fitness Tracker the number of calories my page says I can eat goes up way too high, over 1000 extra calories. I am active but if I eat that many more calories per day I'd gain quite a bit of weight. What can I do to get a more accurate combined total calories allowed? Any suggestions?
