I like it but I'm not sure if the numbers are a little inflated or not. What do you think? I know it's not an exact science or anything but I'm just trying to check if I'm "lightly active" according to Spark to get my calorie intake accurate. Spark adds an extra 500-600 cals to my BMR for being "lightly active". Spark gives me a figure of 1800 cals on days I don't exercise for activity. According to this calculator that would be approximately 3 hours of just standing/light walking. Is that what Spark considers to be lightly active? How does Spark define activity levels?

Take your focus off the Marshmallow.

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. If you don't want to get bulky, lift heavy!

I can bench Nicole Richie, eat more than she does in a day before noon, I have a good 20 lbs on her but could still wear her pants.
