I don't know, but I just did the same with my info (5'9", 157lbs, lose 1lb a week) and it gave me a minimum of 1680 and a max of 1300 calories. No, I didn't invert those. Maybe it's just glitchy today? 1680 sounds about right if I were sedentary, but since I'm exercising for at least an hour every day, I think 2000 would be more appropriate. Any thoughts?
I hope someone can better help you with your issue. I wish I were more help right now.
Thanks Justine - at least it's not just me!
Justine i hour a day and 2000 cal might be a bit low
Thanks, what do you think would be best? I'm also nursing a toddler, but that's only a couple times a day, so it's not as calorie intensive as when he was an infant.
That's what the question was about really Sean, the calculations are too low and therefore all the % breakdowns are too low also - it doesn't affect the 811 ratios but is constantly saying I've eaten too much - I wondered if there was a way to set it with a higher kcal daily net target,
sorry i did not read that properly! i never use any thing to count my cal, just listen to my body, of course in the start i would record based on a average fruit size and simply add from there. actually i subtract i start at lets say 3500 and subtract as the day go's on so i now how much is left to consume , same thing i guess it just what worked for me. average banana med size 110 call it 100 and i eat 15 or so 1500 cal
I'm not really concerned about the calorie target itself but that's what sets the percentages for all the vits and minerals. I suppose I could just use my brain and work it out myself, pretty much eat double the calories then double nutrient figures that it gives!
justine _ i think working out 1 hour a day every day is alot and demands higher cal , my female clients (work at a gym ) that are sad eaters try for 2200 -2500 but they dont do every day work outs.
