I did this report and it seems a little odd. How come it says I should take in over 3400 calories a day if I want to lose weight?


    Either you overestimated your activity level or your current body weight is far above a healthy range. First, go back and check your activity level as it is the only subjective data in the calculations. All other data you enter should be based on measured values. Since body weight is the basis for calculating calories, if your body weight is quite high, then perhaps 3400 calories may be an appropriate weight loss for amount for you to eat.
