Hello! I am new to this website and I'm having difficulty with the exercise log. Do I really need to account for 24hrs of my day? Why can't I just enter my workout and that be it? Can someone help me.

Thanks!

you can just enter the exercise. That's how I've been doing it. Of course, you can always enter other stuff like house work, desk work etc if you want to.

I think FS overestimates the Base calorie rate. So not entering in things like housework will probably make the number they give you a little closer to the real thing. I never entered anything other than real exercise (a planned work out) for the entire year I used the exercise log. Worked out just fine Smile

If you want a caffeinated beverage to help boost memory drink green tea, or you can take Ginkgo biloba supplements.
