My Calories Seem too low even when I input everthing.
Hi all - I've been using Cronometer for a few months off and on and just got back into it. I eat mostly non-processed, whole foods that I make myself from the farmer's market/high end groceries/butcher shops.
I am very diligent about estimating everything that is relatively clear - the vegetables/fruits/meat/dairy etc. I try to also log dressings, oils/fats and anything else that I think I'm consuming.
Despite this, my calories look too low for my body and activity levels - at about 1500-2000 per day... Sometimes I end up inputting more than I think I've used (for example I'll put in 2 tbsp of oil when I think I've only used 1) just because my calories look so low...
I'm 6'3" and I exercise about 1-2 hour/day (playing tennis, hiking, running, lifting) so I know I'm consuming at least 2500 calories to maintain my weight at 185lbs.
Any ideas for why my calories in Cronometer look so low? Has anyone else found this issue?
