Spark Calorie Range Confusion
Wednesday, August 08, 2012
Ok, I've been trying to figure something out with my calorie ranges and just can't wrap my brain around it, hoping some of you very smart people can help me figure this out.
I currently have an input of 3500 calories to burn each week. I burn these usually over 5 days, at 70 minutes per day average at least over those five days. With this information, at my weight, Spark gives me a range of 1300-1650 calories per day.
Out of curiousity I decided to see what would happen to my ranges if I didn't exercise so much, so I input only one day of excercise for 10 minutes burning 100 calories and I got a range of 1200-1550. So busting my ass five days a week is only netting me an extra hundred calories a day???? That just seems wrong. A measely 100 calories per day, for all my 5:30 a.m. sweat sessions.
Does this seem right to you? Am I doing something wrong? I'm not losing much weight anymore either.
