You have to go to that exercise and reduce it by the number of hours that you want to take off. For example, if I accidently said that I biked for 6 hours and I really only biked for 2, I would go to the exercise that I entered and reduce it by 4 hours.

If you click on the exercise. Right next to increase is a drop down arrow. You can click on reduce and then put in the hours that you want to reduce. Hope that this helps Smile

You have to account for 24 hrs in your exercise diary. When you remove activities, it automatically adds those hours to other things. I'm guessing you tried to remove rest and that's how you ended up with 24 hrs biking. It makes more sense if you think of the exercise diary not in terms of adding or subtracting hours from it but shifting time between activities. At the start of each day, it defaults to 16 hours rest and 8 hours sleep- when you add an hour of biking, for example, it will automatically take that hour away from resting, as this is how it works for most people. The important thing to remember is you are always burning calories, it's just a matter of how many. I average about 1.2 cal a minute resting but more like 12 a minute running on the treadmill- 10x as much. The resting calorie burn may not be high but it's definitely not zero!

Add resting as an exercise and make it 10 or so hrs. Then add sleep and add however many hrs you slept. Take them from Badminton.

As funny as that is, it is not helpful to leave it as an activity that says you burn a gazillion calories. If its not accurate, you will just guess and probably overestimate what you burn, and that will lead you to take in more calories than your burn, causing a weight gain. I understand you don't burn a gazillion calories, but if its not right, its not right, and you are working with false information, and I don't want you to blame the system for not working in your weight loss, gain, maintanance journey because if something simple like this that can be fixed. realistically, it neds to say, approx 8hrs sleep, 8hrs rest and 8hrs of whatever activity you do during the day, including exercise. I hope this helps.

I have my default values during the week monday-friday as sleep 7 hrs, work 8 hrs, driving around 1 hour and then resting for the rest of the time. On the weekends the default values I have a resting and sleeping. Once I do an exercise or complete an activity I have the exercise remove what I'm adding from my resting time. Does that make sense? Say on saturday I have sleeping 8 hrs and resting 16 hours. Any exercises or other activities I do it'll decrease the resting time. Your total exercise or activities have to equal 24 hours, this includes resting, sleeping, driving, shopping, whatever you do. Like they said above have resting and sleeping added as default values. Then you can add your other daily activities.

Click on the exercise you want to take off. Pull down the box and choose "reduce by" and then choose what you want to replace it with either "resting" or "sleeping".

They have resting and sleeping so that you can see an estimated total calories you burn a day. Your body is always using energy even when you are not "exercising".
