If I'm taking a total rest day, I accept that I'm not going to hit my calorie burn target but try to also keep my calorie consumption on the low end. The main thing for me is to try to have SOME kind of calorie deficit for the day, even on rest days and days when I'm sick. That's not always possible, but that's okay, too; it's not what you do on one day alone that matters, it's what you do over the course of the week and the month. Even on rest days, though, I'll try to get in some kind of light activity, like going for a walk or something. Hope that helps! It really is a balancing act, more of an art than a science.
