    Fitday is telling me that yesterday I burned 3297 calories broken down as follows:

    Basal: 1769
    Lifestyle: 1086
    Activities: 442

    I have "seated work, some movement" as my 9-5 job routine.

    Does 3297 burned sound a bit excessive? Considering I worked out for an hour and walked 20 mins to and from work, and that only burned 442??

    lifestyle sounds really high, odd.

    fitday is all messed up. It says that you burn 0 calories no matter how long you sleep, when in fact it's something like 50 calories an hour... their food calories are pretty accurate though

    if I was up your ass you'd know where I was
    I don't understand how the fatties lose weight with fitday. It has always seemed to me that they waaaay overestimate your basal and lifestyle calories.
