I have a question. I have been using this site and the app for my driod since January. I have lost a lot of weight with's great.

I have been basically exercising the same on most days. I go for a 20-25 minute run.

My question is, does the web site calculate the calories burned as being less as I lose weight? It seems like when I started, I would do this and my calories at the end of the day would show that I burned over 3000. Now that I have lost roughly 36 lbs, it shows the same exercise is puts me under 3000 calories burned.

If so....great. But, just wanted clarification on how the website does this.

I believe it does ... resets your RDI and amount of calories burned based on weight.

Yes it does, someone who weighs less will burn less calories then someone who weighs more doing the same activity. Simply because a heavier persons body has to work harder.

Agreed the serving only option for creating recipes is very difficult and I cook all my own meals. By weight or by package size for canned and frozen food would be much more productive, both would be ...

would like to see...
Yes, but the current ingredients are all by serving which makes creating a recipe very difficult. i believe that a drop down under serving for things like canned beans and frozen veggies to be added by ...
