Hi,
I am new to FatSecret and when I was setting up my account I accidentally entered the wrong daily activity/exercise level for me currently. Although I want to reach that level of exercise in the future, I am not currently that active. Now I am afraid that the daily calorie counter has calculated too many calories for my daily consumption allowance. How can I change my personal settings for exercise as my lifestyle changes?

Thanks,

Smile

Go to >My Fatsecret (Green Bar Above) >Enter Exercise. There click on activity you want to change or add new activity at bottom of list. Remember, all the minutes, either added or subtracted must add up to a 24 hour day.

Hi,
Thank you for the reply. However, I think I may not have explained clearly explained my problem/question. I understand how to enter my daily exercises in the My Fatsecrest. My problem occurred when creating my account. As I entered my personal information i.e. height, current weight, etc.... Fatsecret asked what my daily activity level is like: "are you sedentary, mildly active, moderately active..." and so on in order to calculate the daily caloric requirements for my body type and activity level so that personal weight loss goals my be achieved. I inadvertently clicked the wrong activity level and now I am concerned that my personalized caloric goal is set too high for each day, as I am not burning that many calories.
Is there a way to correct this error?

Thank you Smile

Click "My Fatsecret", then over to the right you will see "my toolbox". Under that select "my diet" and that should allow you to make changes to your RDI.

Found it! But when I click on my settings I can't find where I change my activity level.
