Anyone using my fitness pal?

    I’ve been logging food intake on MFP for a couple of weeks – today I decided to start logging exercise as well.
    Having logged the stuff that I’d done in the gym, I realised that MFP had amended all the food targets by the calories that I had used in the exercise logged.

    The general point of exercising is to increase the gap between calories consumed and expended – not to exercise so that I can eat more.
    Is anyone using MyFitnessPal that knows if there’s anywhere I can turn off this really unhelpful function?

    I don’t think so. MFP automatically adjusts calories for the amount of steps I walk too, even without hitting the gym, as it is synced with all my gadgets. I just focus on the total calories, up to 800. I pay no attention to the calories remaining.

    thanks oz veggy
    It just seemed very bizarre – I started trying to reset the goals at first because I didn’t know they were different,. I easily remember the calories and carb goals, but not the fat / protein etc.
