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 it...it'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.

Thanks,

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.

Grams, Calories, & Pie Charts, oh my!
I was thinking the same- so far today I've eaten: Fat 36 Carb 195 Prot 102: Cals total 813 and it says 60% carb, 40% fat and 0% fat on the chart...surely that can't be right! I'm vegetarian ...

Cholesterol listing
It is one of the options for your food diary. Under mytoolbox, is my settings, on that page you can choose the 6 options for your food diary.

It will be great if fatsecret records sugar total in the food journal
It can record sugar, you just need to set it up in your setting. You can also track sodium, fat, protein, carbs, net carbs, cholesterol, fiber and calories.

I go to the full site on my iphone as well. I'm not good at all that tiny stuff though so gave up on that also . LOL

PACT APP
Is there a way to get FATSECRET to sync/be added to PACT? I'd love to use it over MFP, it's no where near as bulky.
