QUOTE:

OK I see, you're adding exercise into your activity level. You shouldn't. The activity level is for what you do during the day for normal activity, NOT including specfic cardio or weight training activity. There is a specific section for exercise that is different from activity level. It's important to note that when entering your exercise into your goals section all you are doing is giving the site a guideline so it can estimate what your recommended workout times/days should be, it doesn't add any exercise calories into your goal until you've actually performed and enter them; whereas daily activity is basically a measure of how active your metabolism is throughout the day. The reason for the distinction is because spiking the metabolism with exercise is temporary, where activity level is the constant level of calorie burn through the day.

for example, I sit at a desk all day, but I do about a mile a day of walking including walking up and down stairs (for my job). Then when I get home at night I take the dogs out for an hour of play time. This is all daily activity. so I set my activity level as lightly active, even though I do Very vigorous workouts for about 1 hour a day 6 days a week. My exercise routine isn't added into this part of it. That is separate. If you add your exercise into your daily activity AND add exercise to your exercise journal, you are effectively doubling the amount of calories you are saying you burn. which would account for why you were eating too much when you first started.

this one of the biggest reasons people don't have their calories right. If you're not sure, better to underestimate your activity level, or wear a heart rate monitor for a full day (without exercising that day) and use the custom setup to put your daily calorie burn in manually.
