It would be awesome to have the ability to set up different calorie goals for different days of the week so I didn't have to change it everyday. I eat more on the days I lift so MFP, this would be a great feature to add!

You could set activity to your daily level ( without exercise) and then add in the exercise when you do it. This is perhaps a better solution.

This has been asked for many times over the time I've been here, nearly 2 years.

I disagree because a HRM does not accurately tell you calories burned during strength training.

just set your calorie goal to zero, and eat what you have planned for that day or are you afraid of red numbers?

Follow your weekly calorie limit instead of your daily limit ;-)

Why not?

Reviving this thread instead of starting a new one. PLEAsE let us adjust our goals daily.

I'm eating at maintenance today and maybe tomorrow because I'm sick. It would be really nice not to see myself in the red for doing what's healthy. Sure, it doesn't actually matter in the long run, but psychologically, it makes it feel like failure.

Considering that this has been asked for repeatedly, AND the fact that MFP recently received funding to make improvements...this seems like an obvious change for the better.

Maybe if I'll say "please" again?

This is not even a problem, seems to be that common sense is missing. My calories are set to 1780, some days I eat that amount, other days I eat less, and I also add in my exercise calories and do not eat them back. I cannot believe that in this day and age a simple mathematical problem is giving causing such problems.
