That sounds pretty cool! I would want to get a fancy phone (so I can see how it changes on the go) and one of those arm band thingy's before I try it though. I am just putting in how many calories I burned the previous week right now, and it is working pretty well because I usually burn about the same amount. That is only including actual exercise calories burned though, and not daily activity calories. So, if I got one of those arm bands and a nice phone it would be something I would consider switching to. I kind of don't like that it would permanently change how I can adjust my fitness settings though, because I don't know if it would work for me or not. Just gonna be stubborn for a while and stick to what I've been doing.

Did you see the SP announcement blog today about optional changes to how they calculate your nutrition range based on your fitness each day? I thought you would be interested given our discussion in this thread. Here's the blog in case you haven't seen it yet:

I estimate for the week, and my calories are an average. I tend to stay on the lower end of the range on days I don't exercise as much.

Hi!

The SP program calculates your nutrition range based on your estimated weekly calories burned. Personally, it makes sense to me to have it based on a little bit longer term like that instead of adjusting daily. So, if you need to, I would change your fitness settings/goals only if your week's average changes.

If you want to get an "official" SP coach's or other expert input, I'd suggest posting your question in the Message Boards. You can get there by using the Message Boards link that is under the Community tab near top of the page.

I have some days that I am very active, burning lots of calories, those are the days I work. On my days off I am lucky if I get a 30 minute walk in. The adjustment in calories is a difference of about 1000. Should I tweak my fitness settings on a daily basis to know how many calories I should consume, or just leave it at the higher one?
