Hi Tiffany, What are you adding to Activities and Exercise? If you don't put anything in that area, it will automatically say you rested for the hours you weren't asleep. As you add activities / exercise, the website should deduct hours from resting so that all of your hours combined = 24.

You burn calories 24 hrs a day even when you are asleep. You burn just slightly more cal per hour of exercise than per hour of "rest". Rest means that you are not very active, it does not mean no activity at all. FS automatically calculates your daily burn based on sleep, rest, activities entered. That is why you cannot remove rest and sleep completely like so many members before you already tried. Based on a number of earlier discussions, the community came to the conclusion that there is no need to account for all activities like driving or washing dishes. It will produce overinflated numbers. Just add vigorous exercise.

Thank you for going in depth for that, when Samypants explained I understood for the most part the actions, but thank you for explaining the reasoning behind it, now it makes sense.
