It shouldn't cause you to eat back what you're burning. It doesn't increase your calorie range by that much. I'm not talking about syncing your fitness tracker with your calorie range. If you go to your "fitness setup" on your fitness tracker, scroll down to the bottom of the page, there will be a question about how many calories your burn per week. Enter your weekly calorie burn there. This will ensure you are getting adequate calories for your weekly calorie burn through exercise.
You burn calories just existing, your BMR (basal metabolic rate). Let's say yours is 1500 cals.
You burn calories through daily activities. Spark automatically gives you around 300 cals for that.
You burn 1800 cals without exercise.
If you burn 2100 cals/week through exercise and divide it by 7, you burn approximately 300 cals/day.
Your total daily energy expenditure would be 2100 cals. Eat -500 to -1000 cals/day and you'll lose 1-2 lbs/week which is the safe amount for weight loss. As long as it doesn't cause you to dip below 1200 cals.
As long as you enter your weekly calorie burn in your fitness setup and have a realistic goal date entered (1-2 lbs/week). Spark will do all those calculations for you and give you an appropriate calorie range.

"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.
