I've invested in a smart band - the Huawei Band 3 Pro - and I LOVE IT!

It syncs with Google Fit which is perfect because it automatically adds the number of steps I've taken throughout the day plus the equivalent calories burned into my FS Exercise Diary...



But I'm unclear on a couple of things:

1. Where did it take the extra 483 calories (~1976 total minus 1493 from Google Fit)?

2. Do I need to add exercise manually on top of the steps? I was planning to add Desk Work of 15h35m. (It's basically the rest of the hours of the day when I'm not asleep. I've done other activities throughout the day but I thought it's better to underestimate than overestimate.)



But it looks like a lot of calories burned.

Thanks in advance for the clarifications. Smile

Found the answer to question #1 on the desktop version...



483 calories was the amount burned during Sleeping.

Still unclear on question #2.

Appreciate any help. 🙏

Alrighty- I got the answer after exploring the desktop version. I don't need to add exercises manually. I just need to make sure that my journal is updated in Google Fit. Thanks so much for your time.

I use google fit for walking and enter my exercises manually on the phone app for Fat Secret. Either works.
Consume whatever foods you prefer, whenever you prefer to consume them, while ensuring nutrient sufficiency and meeting caloric goals.

Thank you. I'm logging my exercises in Google Fit and add sleeping time through FS mobile. Smile

I also use Fat Secret, a very useful and easy to use program. I'm writing research on strategies and formulas that can be used to calculate the optimal weight for each person, as well as count calories and micronutrients. I contacted the company https://edubirdie.com/pay-for-research-papers and paid for some materials that helped me a lot in my research.

This is a very good app. There is nothing complicated about it.

How do I change the password? It is not in My Settings and I don't have a "Toolbox" as other answers to this question have stated that I should go to.

Different number in diary and in diet calendar
Hmm! Some guesses: Could it be that the FS page needs refreshing between uses? Also, perhaps double check that you're comparing the diary total and the number on the specific calendar day, as op ...

Garmin Connect Integration
Hey Fatsecret dudes. I love your app and have given up on FitBit. Do you think you could let us know if we can sync with Garmin or MyFitnesPal? Thanks
