I did not use the old tracker, period. I didn't exercise much, though, so there wouldn't have been a lot of difference to my calorie range if I *had* set it up right. I just stuck to my range as calculated with NO exercise. And if I happened to exercise, I'd simply be mindful of it and not worry too much if i felt hungry and wanted to eat 200, 300, 500 calories more than "the average day."
I did try to use the new tracker. I do like it a lot better - the fact that it is actively, immediately integrated with the nutrition tracker is a big plus. However, I did feel skeptical of some of the ranges it was giving me. And - coincidentally?? - I entered a "plateau" phase these past few weeks. So of course i'm looking with a sideways eye at the new tracker as a potential contributor to that plateau. I honestly do think it was just coincidence, but still, one way or another, I find myself stuck on a plateau that I am really ready to bust. SO this week I have gone back to my old ways, hanging near the low end of my range, taking any exercise calories as "bonus."
I'll give the new fitness tracker another try once the scale gets moving again.
