Subject: "Calories out" stuck in bed rest level

I've been trying to adjust the "calories out" footer on my daily log entries since the new BT site roll out, but it seems stuck in the lowest activity level. The "activity level" box on my settings page is at the appropriate level, but my body metrics (age, height, weight, and hours slept) are ghosted out. I'm guessing this is why the log can't read the activity level and calculate accordingly? Is there a simple settings adjustment somewhere that I've missed?

Thanks

I looked at your account and I believe it's working correctly.  Your body metrics will only show up in your daily log if you log them (weight, hours slept, etc.).  What's in the 'training log settings is used for the actual calculation.  If anything in your lifestyle changes significantly (sleep, activity level, weight), changing it in the settings will keep it more accurate.

Thanks for clearing that up Ron, I thought the metrics popped up as a default like they used to. I've logged them for today and saved the activity level in the settings as heavy labour, hopefully it will calculate accordingly today.

Sorry to bother you again Ron, but I still can't get it to work properly. I have activity level set at "heavy labour" but the "calories from lifestyle"  reads just  1107. Surely this can't be right?

Thanks

One of those minor 'english to metric' conversion things.  

What is happening is that if you manually update your weight for that day, kg users are not being converted correctly for the formula on the backend, ie 57 kgs is using it as 57 lbs - half of what you really weigh, that is why your calories out seems waaaaay too low.

I submitted this to the programmer, but for now, re-adjust your activity level and either 1 - simply don't log daily weight entries until we fix it or 2 - temporarily switch your log to pounds.

* I took out the daily weight logging in your logs, though you may want to change your activity level and resave those workouts to adjust it correctly.

Thanks for following up.

We just applied a fix, it should now work correctly, switch your log back to pounds and let me know how it looks.

No one likes to look like a fool, but it’s hard not to when you don’t know what you’re doing as a beginner, so if it helps, go ahead and pretend.

A powerful attraction of the calories in/calories out paradigm is its apparent simplicity. Unfortunately, the human body isn’t so simple and that is why this seemingly wonderful formula doesn't work.
