I use my Fitbit every single day. I love it, because it really encourages me to be more active. I know that since starting to use it I have become much more active. I walk a lot of steps. Many days I get 20,000-25,000 steps. I get 15,000 easily Monday-Saturday, and try for 20,000 3-4 days a week. I manage this by walking while at work while I do work on my tablet, and walking with friends in the evening or jogging on the treadmill while I watch TV. Sundays I usually only get 8000-10,000.
On the days that I get 20,000, my calories burned is quite high. I am burning 3000+ calories per day. I only want to lose 1 pound per week, so I should eat around a 500 calorie deficit according to fitbit. Yet this feels like a lot.
So, if you have a fitbit, do you follow Spark recommendations, or do you base it on the calories burned every day on your fitbit?
