Walking calories messed up

Issachar_CIssachar_C Posts: 3Member Member Posts: 3Member Member
I’m not sure if this is normal or anything, but whenever I walked this past three days, I’ve just been losing calories to eat (as in more calories “eaten”) than more calories burned. I’m not sure if this is an app thing or glitch but it is bothering me a bit

    Not sure if this applies to you, but if you set your profile to allow negative calorie adjustments, and you aren't moving as much as the setting you selected, (sedentary, active, etc.), that can lead to calories being taken away.

    The problem I have is that I was walking normal with my settings as I put them, but then they gave me less extra calories despite walking more, day after not giving me anything at all, then the next day walking normally but having calories deducted from my daily intake

    What do you have your activity level set as? It's possible that you're not as active as you entered, and it's adjusting to fit that.

    If you're using apple-mfp integration synchronize apple to Pacer app and Pacer app to MFP, or similar setup, instead of synchronizing directly.

    It’s been happening to me too. I’m set as sedentary and it’ll take away 400-500 calories sometimes. I think it’s a glitch.

    Sounds like a glitch -- you might want to post something in the support section.

    There must be quite a lot of glitches because today the system has me as 92lbs down instead of what Ive actually lost. It also changed my units from stones into lbs. I changed it back this morning and thought no more of it

    Then this afternoon, I log in to find its changed it again. Crazy.

    Little update: I put my activity level as “not very active” and it led to me having 3000 calories being taken away. I don’t think that’s normal
