The "activity levels" are definitely an estimate only, but they do account for an average person's 24 hour day, with their waking hours spent at the activity level that's set in the profile.

If you're not getting exactly the results you want, you can try setting your activity level up or down a notch depending on if you find you're in need of more or fewer calories.

Or, you can integrate with FitBit ( http://www.myfitnesspal.com/apps/show/fitbit ) which will act as a fine-tuning device to adjust your calorie goal based on your movement during the day.
