Calories Burned

I am inquiring about the Calories Burned chart.

This morning, I haven't burned any calories (or any that I have logged, at least), so what are these numbers and why are they there?

I obviously haven't burned 2209 calories today. My understanding is that this is the amount of calories I have yet to burn after my last time eating (yesterday).

So, what does the Calories Burned chart mean?

Also, what is my activity level and how are those numbers calculated? Is there a pedometer on this app that tracks my activity level? If so, this isn't accurate to my understanding.

Thank you for any guidance!

    This number will automatically populate in order for you to plan your food diary. The Calories you are seeing are as a result of your Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR) and activity level settings. While these Calories are a total of those burned throughout the day, we add them as a lump sum at the beginning of the day so it is easier to plan your meals and activity in relation to your general calories burned!
    Your BMR is the rate of energy expenditure of your body at rest and the number of Calories burned is the result of a calculation from the BMR.
