Any time you change your exercise routine, your muscles temporarily retain water to help them adapt to the change. This will go away as your body gets used to the exercise.

I have had a consist diet of 1200-1500 calories for the past 3 weeks. I have kicked up my exercising a bit because I was only seeing slight pound fluctuations. Saturday I started 25 min circuit training every other day, and have been doing the last 2 weeks 50-60 mins of jogging/running every day. The last 2 days I have had a pound increase...2 pound gain this week so far. What am I doing wrong?

Simply "adding back" exercise calories is a pretty crude way of doing things, and while exercise has many healthy benefits, this method won't help your weight loss.

However, if you enter your exercise levels into the My Fitness tracker, Spark will take this into account in coming up with an overall intake recommendation appropriate for your needs. You don't (and shouldn't) add back your exercise calories manually.

You don't want to "eat back" the calories you burned, but you need to eat in your range so you are supporting the activity level for your day.

OK so after I enter # of calories I burned, it subtracts it from the # of calories I ate, which is in the calorie range I am suppose to eat. My ?? is do I then need to eat enough calories to get back up in my calorie range? I'm not hunger and I just as soon not.
