I found this report about a week ago, and I love it too! I think the disclaimer is so that people don't become exercise bulemic, cause if someone eats an extra muffin, the temptation is to then run for an extra 400 calories so that the daily calorie differential is good--then multiply that by having an entire pizza and spending an extra 2 hours on the cross trainer. I can easily see how people could make that the new pattern, rather than changing their eating habits. What Spark wants, tho, is that over time the differential is good, not necessarily just for that day.

At least that's the logical reason I came up with! But I do love to check it, and I really like the Differential Report over time, too.

I like this info, too, and am also confused about the disclaimer/warning.

It is actually pretty nifty, but I wonder why Spark puts the warning on the page...

"We provide this report because members like you requested it, but SparkPeople does not recommend focusing on your daily calorie differential. Please use this report with care. Weight loss happens by creating a caloric deficit over time- not in a single day. We don't necessarily encourage people to eat more on the days they work out or eat less on days they don't exercise. We encourage you to look at your calorie goals (what you eat and what you burn) on a weekly- not daily- basis to notice overall trends."

Something to think about...

On the tool bar at the top of the page, click on start, then click reports. There are many to choose from but it is one of two with a very bright colored graph for the icon.
