Are you saying the calories that is listed as your goal in the nutrition tracker online is different than what the app shows?

Based on what I've read, the SP nutrition tracker gives your calorie goal based on the calories burned based on the number of minutes you said you would exercise a week in the fitness tracker. So it basically figures your BMR and then adds in the average calories per day of exercise you planned. I personally use a heart rate monitor to figure my calories burned and the calories burned estimate based on minutes in the fitness tracker is very different from what I typically burn for that number of minutes. So what I do is adjust my goal minutes in the fitness tracker to whatever I need to so that the calories burned is very close to what I really do burn in exercise. I just ignore what it says about my goal minutes.

Does anyone know about the BMR calculation on the iPad app? I was looking at the report on my calorie differential, and it lists a BMR for me that is way off... My BMR should be around 1350 (based on just about ever other calculator, including on the SP website), but the app says 1664.. Is the app not really calculating *my* BMR and is instead using a generic? (which is of course totally silly and makes that report useless to me).

Anyone else experiencing this or know why that calculation is so different on the app?
TIA!
