Hello, Phine. I will try to explain using myself as an example. I hope I am clear and don't confuse you more.

My RDI (according to fs) is 2000 cal/day. That means I need 2000 cal a day to maintain my weight. To lose 1 lb. a week I need to have net calories of 1500/day.

On the calendar there is food cal (intake), exercise cal (what I burn), and net cal (what I have left over for my body to use).

On Sept 5th my calendar looked like this:
food cal. exercise cal. net cal.
1562 3627 2065

Net cal. are exercise minus food. Even though I only ate 1562 cal that day I did not lose weight because my net cal. were over 2000. To lose I would need my net cal. to be about 1500.

I'm not sure about that downward green arrow but I think it means I burned more than I took in.

I hope I explained this right and that it's understandable.

It's much easier than it used to be. You simply to go the Exercise entry that you put in and zero out the exercise to zero hours and zero minutes.
