I just recently started using a Fitbit One to track my daily activity and I was just wondering about something in relation to the new nutrition page which is directly linked to calories burned. When I switched over to the new system (nutrition directly linked to calories burned) I put in sedentary as my fitness level because I felt that's where I was, and I also would then track the walking I did and so forth. However as I have adjusted to the fitbit, I am seeing a huge increase in my calorie burn (which I recognize is somewhat inflated, due to the fact that any device is not accurate) and therefore a huge increase in the amount of calories I should be eating.
Today for example I went for one long walk (45-50 minutes), ran on the treadmill for 35 minutes (apx. 6.6mph) and went for another walk (20-30minutes). Plus I am pretty active at home because I take care of 15month toddler. Today with all of that the Fitbit had me at almost 20,000 steps (which I believe) and burning over 2000 calories (not so sure about). Because of that calorie burn SparkPeople has adjusted my daily calorie goal from around a minimum of 1700 to a minimum of 3700. Should I be eating that much? I'm currently at around 2600 calories eaten (which is fairly normal for me on an active day) so should I be looking to eat more?
