I am confused by net calories.
To give a little background, my daily allotted calories is 1400. I usually get 8 hours of sleep, and burn between 200-300 calories for workouts each day.
At the top of FatSecret's "summary" it displays a green number in kcals. I am so confused as to what that means, and what the "Net" number means below it.
I understand RDI just fine.
Can someone explain what those others numbers mean, and possibly let me know what numbers I should strive for?

The net is just the difference between what you ate and what you burned. So, say it’s ⬇️500 that means you burned 500 more than you consumed- so technically if you are an “extra” 500 that day, you would “break even” because you would have eaten and burned the same amount. It’s just the difference, +/- I hope that was clear!

IT MIGHT BE BECAUSE YOUR NOT EATING ENOUGH, NOT WAITING LONG ENOUGH, OR ARENT DOING ENOUGH MUSCLE STIMULATION TO KICK OFF FAT BURN.
