Adaptive TDEE calculation, Why don't we have it?
I've seen this asked on 2 other posts going back a while with no official answer, what's the deal? Seems like a no brainer to me.
We can have all the fancy integrations with fitness trackers and scales that make assumptions and then add or subtract numbers, but when our macros themselves are a guess, and the calories burned is also a guess, what's the point?
More and more competition has this now, MacroFactor is doing it very successfully, Carbon does it, MM+ has done it for a while, and it's a priceless feature. So much goes into the in/out equation and the gray area is huge, but since most people's goals are either to gain, lose, or maintain, the scale doesn't lie.
I still feel Cronometer is the most feature rich by a lot, but missing that one is a crime. I won't lie, I've been cheating with MF, having the ability to set a weight gain/loss goal and just track and having it auto adjust to keep me on track in real time can no longer be lived without. I workout more and raise TDEE, I get more cals, or maybe an adjustment to the macros otherwise, I start slacking off like around the holidays now, it'll back be off if the scale is showing i'm regressing, it just keeps going and it's almost impossible to screw up. This HAS to be added!
Would love an official word on this.
Assuming you guys are smart enough to have moles using your competitors products, the overwhelming majority of their users coming in daily are MFP people that smartened up, and Cronometer people that came and paid more specifically for the AI TDEE adjustments. It's a pretty regular conversation one that side. Worst part, is all of us agree this is the better overall tracker, but that one issue sells people.
