I don't agree with the "calculated" RDI for me. Can I do a manuel overide?

Yes. When you get the FatSecret result, simply type over that with the one you want. Theirs is horribly generous and does not allow fast weight loss. Consider this one: http://caloriecount.about.com/tools/calories-goal Or the outstanding Body Weight Simulator (link on DietTruth.org).

totally agree with Draglist: Fatsecret definitely is generous with their RDI calorie intake (although it is actually better losing 0.5 kg a week for longer than, lets say, 1kg per week as it allows you to learn how to eat healthily in the long term which is what you want)

To follow up - on the page where you calculated your RDI, there is a second box that will allow you to manually enter the number of calories you want the program to use as your RDI.

Thanks so much! I did exactly as you said and it now I have my own calorie count instead of theirs, which was way too high! Have a fabulous day!

This is a good starting point, but you really need an exercise plan to maximize the results. Even if it is just walking. Get moving!
