CALORIES (side bar box) how to interpret the selections NET and COMBINED for weightloss

The CALORIES display box on the lefthand sidebar on the webpage, not the phone app, how do I interpret the selections NET or COMBINED as they relate to weight loss? COMBINED is displayed in a graph using three different colors displayed as EXCERCISE, NET, and CONSUMED, with CONSUMED being the largest and reaching the highest on the graph. Does this mean I ate too much to lose weight? because the NET and EXCERCISE bars shown in the graph are displayed as approximately one-half the size of the CONSUMED section of this particular graph. Also, if I choose to look at the graph representing only the NET, it displays a negative bar. Do I interpret this to display the calories I have burned over and above my overall caloric requirements for that day including exercise?
