Hi

I am either having a problem with this application or not understanding how it works correctly. I am running the Android version of myfitnesspal.

I have set a goal calories of 1270 and goal weight of 73Kg. After exercising today I have a Net calories of 352 and Remaining calories of 918. However, if I press "Complete this Entry" now, it reports that in 5 weeks time I will weigh 73.3Kg. This is higher than the goal weight I set.

It mentions that I need to eat more, so if I add another food entry, and complete the entry again, the 5 week weight will be even higher. It just doesn't seem to make sense.

Is somebody able to please help me understand why the 5 week weight is so high?

Help is much appreciated.

Cheers

This is ridiculous. The object isn't to burn your whole days calories, it is to create a healthy deficit while getting healthy. You are male and males need wayyyyy more than 1270. Or zero, which is what happened with what you described. Good luck, try resetting your loss to .5 -1# a week so you can eat more and have more energy. There is nothing wrong with the app.

It goes off of what your current weight is now. Not your goal weight.

It is predicting what you would weigh in 5 weeks if you ate the same thing every day as you did today. It's got nothing to do with your goal weight.

According to your profile you have 9 kg to go so if you think you will reach that in 5 weeks I think you are being very unrealistic. Why are you eating so little? 352 calories is an amount that an eating disordered person would have.

only if that was every day, on days I do longer bike rides, I sometimes just can't bring myself to eat 2000 calories for dinner. Take the 4th of July for example, I 3,836 Cal (most during lunch just after my ride) and I couldn't eat more at dinner had I tried. 965 Cal was my net for that day. And it could have been lower, I forced myself to finish the 1,280 Cal burger for lunch.

On 6/27, my net was only 4, and I ate almost 2,500 Cal. Now, if that was every day and he did it intentionally, it would be different.

Um what do your bike rides have to do with anything? I wasn't talking to you.
