Actually, it’s helping your numbers you ge credit for calories burned while not doing anything else (resting). It does this because we burn calories even when we just sit for a time.

The resting calories are adjusted as you enter othe exercises. Make sense?

The resting hours are to balance to a 24hour day. You still burn calories even resting. HOWEVER I did a metabolic resting rate calc for myself and got to 64.52 Cal per hour. Fatsecret is using almost 91.67 for me so overestimating my calorie burn rate by 30%. Could be why people battle to loose weight.
In case anyone is interested the calculation is as follows:
For Women: BMR = 655 + (4.35 x weight in pounds) + (4.7 x height in inches) - (4.7 x age in years)
For Men: BMR = 66 + (6.23 x weight in pounds) + (12.7 x height in inches) - (6.8 x age in years)

working out
My recommendation would be: Clean up your diet until your knees are ok. You don't need to work out to lose weight.
