My baseline for activity is that I am "Active" which gives me a range of approximately 1,380-1,730 calories a day with a goal to lose 2 pounds per week.
On Saturday, my Fitbit adjustment got me to 2,227-2,577 calories. Fitbit said I burned 2,475 calories.
On Friday, Sparkpeople said I could eat 2,570-2,920 calories. Fitbit said I burned 2,794 calories.
Obviously, this is nowhere near being accurate! I shouldn't be eating the same amount that I burned. I love how MyFitnessPal will take the difference between their projected burn and Fitbit's burn and use that as the exercise calories. Sparkpeople's method doesn't make any sense. It gives me way too many extra calories. I would love to have my range adjust when I go above and beyond my normal activity, but right now, I can't even do normal activity without getting a huge influx of calories. And since my "normal" activity and workouts are often intertwined (ie: going on a mile walk to and from the grocery store) it's hard to separate the two.
