What's the best way to log in activities/ exercise

In the settings it asks your overall activity level.

I consider myself very active. I teach yoga. I'm a massage therapist. I have a four year old. I tend to be on my feet all day.

Now should I still log my exercise/ when I teach classes ect? I noticed that it impacts my overall calorie intake when I add those each in. Or do they count with my overall being active?

Am I doing this right?

  • Hi Sami_Sunshine_89,

    The activity level settings can give you a way to estimate your average total calories burned from daily activities and exercise. If you are choosing a higher level to account for your exercises as well, then I would not log them separately on top of that.

    If you would like to log your exercises separately, say they vary from day to day, or you are a fellow data nerd that likes to keep track of the details, then I would recommend using a lower activity level to avoid double counting the calories burned from exercise.

    Best,
