setting the activity level?

i notice all Mifflin-St. Jeor equation activity is based on how many times you Mifflin-St. Jeor equation exercise a week but this one doesnt on this site. should i not take my weight training in consideration?

    Hi @FitDon83 ,
    The Mifflin St. Jeor Equation is based on age, height and weight; it measures Basal Metabolic Rate, and as with any equations like this is an approximation, not an absolute. If you know your specific Basal Metabolic Rate based on other testing, you can select "Custom" in the Drop Down Menu in your Profile Tab, but the Mifflin St.Jeor Equation is in general the best approximation.
    If you are weight training, you can add that activity via "Add Biometric" or you can change your activity level accordingly to be lightly/moderately/very active to account for your training.

    How can I gauge my activity level accurately? My Fit Bit steps are not synced along with the rest of the FitBit data.
