Ok so I'm new to this site and I'm desperate to lose weight but I'm a little confused as 2 what the best way 2 do it is, and also this may sound extreamly stupid but I was looking at the exercise diary and I added the exercise that I had done 2day and it appears I have burnt more callories than I've eaten, but I have barely done any exercise!!! Like I said I may sound really stupid but I just want 2 get it right............ Help would be greatly appreciated

Your exercise calories for each day should show the number of calories you burn being alive based on the weight you record. By default it is broken into 16 hours of resting and 8 hours of sleeping. As you record physical exercise you need to replace the time for resting with the time exercising.

If you look at your exercise calendar before you record anything it should be the number of calories you need to eat to maintain that weight. Depending on how many pounds you want to lose each week you should try to be that number every day if you can. For example, beating it by 1000 calories a day will, over time,result in around a 2 pound a week loss in weight. You can beat that number thru a combination of eating less caloriues and/or doing exercise.
