Add exercises over activity level?

If I chose a moderate activity level and then input my run or bodyweight exercises will the calories consumed overalap between my activity and the initial estimate? Thanks! This really gives me anxiety 😃

    Yes.... Setting an activity level is useful if you don't plant to track your individual activity or you are in a job where you are constantly on the move. If you have a sedentary job, I'd set the targets to "sedentary" and just track any activity you do in the day.

    If you are importing from a device, it's best to not set an activity level.

  • Hi... so putting in moderate for a 2 hour workout and not doing much for the rest of the day then not putting in any exercise in the app

    Or putting in sedentary and putting in the individual exercises ...

    Which way is more appropriate

    Thanks

    I'd set your activity to sedentary (if you have a desk job/are a student) then just track your individual activities.

  • Like Andy I walk 90 - 120 minutes a day then pretty sedentary. I noticed you recommend setting activity as sedentary... I am trying to lose weight but if you walk as much as we do should we up food intake? Will this drive BMR downward?
