Question

Will someone explain to me the "Compare Diets" section in the lower right hand corner of the Diet Calendar? Certainly the average daily calorie consumption for those trying to follow WW is more than approx. 367 calories per day. I don't get it.

I wonder if it is flawed because not every uses the site to log their food so when it averages everyone who choose WW it is counting all those zeroes too!

Here is what I found out....

The "How does your diet compare" section looks at all other members who are
recording as following the same diet as you (or member diets if they are
following their own diet) and compares what foods they have entered into
their food diaries using an average of recently recorded results. Some
people only use their food diary for recording a single meal rather than a
whole day's meals and this might be the reason for a the lower number. We
are aware of this issue and are working to improve the feature so please
bear with us.

I also know that the part that has your diet averages all your entries that are showing on your calendar. So yours is an average I don't know about the other diet part. (I had gotten curious and averaged mine just to see.) The exercise is the same way.

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!
