Calorie ranges based on fitness tracking?
Wednesday, July 10, 2013
I believe I have made a mistake. I thought it would be a good idea to switch, but I was immediately alarmed when I saw this, after not even having exercised yet today:
Your Daily Calorie Goal: 2,351 - 2,701
Remaining Calories Today: 1,933 - 2,283
Whoa... WHAT??!!! Before I switched it was 1200 - 1500 daily and I was eating, on average, 1300 calories per day and not losing weight. I keep gaining and losing the same 2 - 3 pounds (feel free to look at my exercise and nutritional trackers) in spite of my efforts. I will be gaining quite a bit of weight if I eat within the ranges above. Good grief, that's double what I normally eat!!! Once my FitBit starts falsly logging activities again, it must be slow today, my recommended range will be over 3000 calories for the day. *sigh*
But I keep hoping FitBit Flex and I will eventually get along. I keep trying. It logged 1000 monthly fitness minutes for me after 1 week. 500 would have been more accurate, though.
Maybe because it's a new feature the bugs haven't been worked out quite yet. Did anybody have a similar experience switching?
I know, it sounds like I'm always complaining. I don't mean to, I am a very happy and positive person. This just seemed worth mentioning/questioning.
