My daily calorie intake is set at 1000 calories. Ive logged everything I ate and my exercise today so far... which hasn't been much. I'll update after a nightly bike ride... but anyway!! Why do I have a green arrow and a Net Cal of over 1000??? Is this were it should be?

I'm confused!

That category shows what you have eaten is less than what you have expended for the day. Keep in mind that this website will prefill "exercise" of sleep and rest. Typical advice is to always try to make that arrow show in the green with a number of 500 or greater for weight loss of at least 1 pound a week.
