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.
To a healthier us !

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

I think that you have to contact FS and have them delete it for you. (I think I read that on the FAQ page or in a prior post)
