Your Weight Tracker chart will have picked up the very first starting weight you entered into your Personal Details. You need to change this in two places...
If you want to enter your new start weight on a date before today, you need to use the calendar. This is the small icon with what looks like a number '7' on it (to the left of the 'update chart' button). Click on the calendar icon to open it, select the date you want, then close the window by clicking the small x in the top right corner. Press the 'update chart' button.
Your start weight entry must be the earliest entry by date for your overall weight loss to be calculated correctly.
Nutracheck already factors BMR calories into your personal calorie allowance. So when we pull the calories burned figure from your Fitbit, we only count actual exercise you have done or steps taken. If we imported all BMR calories burned, there would be an element of double counting and we want to ensure that the calories burned figures used are in your best weight loss interest i.e. not over stated.
No - it is not necessary to reduce your food intake by 200 calories if you don't achieve the exercise target, but this combined target was set for you to help you achieve your weight loss at the rate you selected. You can still expect to lose, but the extra activity target is designed to accelerate this.
To lose 1lb a week you need to create a calorie deficit of between 500 - 600 calories a day. This is best achieved through a combination of eating less and increasing your activity level - hence why you are also set a target to burn 200 calories each day in additional activity.
Burning the extra 200 calories is especially important if your daily target is 1,400 calories to ensure that you lose weight at the rate you have selected. You will still lose weight by controlling your food intake, but without the exercise, but weight loss may be slightly slower (this is all explained on your Results page on the website).
Plus increasing your activity level has so many positive benefits on your general health!
