The tracker is not enough protein. You almost always need more, especially with PCOS. Try eating at least half as many grams of protein as carbs.

According to the tracker I am eating enough protein. But I am also doing a lot more activity than they are recommending.

You used to have to go in and refresh your goal screens (I am not sure which one...) every 10 pounds or so. If you have increased your activity level alot, make sure that you have stated that in spark, or it may have your calories too low.

I also put in my calories burned, because what spark people calculates for my minutes is way low (probably because I walk on a 12% incline on my treadmill, which makes a huge difference in calories)

I am a little confused. Do your nutritional needs automatically update as you lose weight or increase fitness level? I have increased my fitness level and I feel like I am starving all the time even though I am eating the recommended # of calories.
