Ooo Jenn I see what you were talking about. I always left that blank as I didn't know how many I burned a week. Ive only been on here for a little over 3 weeks now lol. I just played around with the numbers a bit and im going to see how this works out for me.

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. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.

This is the only way to loose the weight. I am at goal so I have to be careful now to get out of balance.

Olga- thanks for the link. If im understanding it correctly im fine to burn as much as I want as long as I at least eat within my range and not below. Time to go work out :)

Yes I tried that. That's how my nutritional tracker was set up before but sometimes my min calories would be 2000+ so I felt like I wasn't doing anything but eating back what I burned and didn't like it. I just recently changed it to see if this will help me lose more. I just didn't want to stall my weight loss if my body was going to think I was starving it.

Did you enter the amount of calories you burn per week into your fitness setup? This will adjust your calorie range.

I was wondering if a person stays within the recommended calorie range on here but burns more calories than they consume- is that bad as well? I am not close to burning more than what I eat as my recommended is 1300-1700cals and I only burn about 500 minus some since I know machines aren't all that accurate. I just wanted to know if this can also stall a persons weight loss if you get too close or surpass
