Calorie Budget Number Does Not Match Target Setting Number

edited December 2019 in Help

I have set my target calories, carbs, etc. to fixed values. However, the calorie budget displayed on my diary is higher than the number I entered in my target calorie field under 'settings'. Why is this happening and how can I fix it?

Thanks much,

    What you are seeing is your BMR (how many calories your body needs at rest to maintain its current size), along with your activity setting and/or entered activity. You can't actually alter the calories burned number unless you change your activity level or your body composition/size significantly changes.

    Your target for calorie intake is not reflected in the calories summary (unless you set a target for weight loss) but can be found in the diary summary below.
