    Good afternoon all! I just got my zip connected to MFP, but I can't seem to find where my fitbit.com user number is, etc. Any direction on this? Thanks!

    It depends. It could easily be with 5-10% which is the best you'll get.

    It's step-based calorie burn for movement.
    Therefore if a vast part of your day was standing with no steps (given sleeping-level calorie burn then) - no that wouldn't be accurate.
    If large amounts of almost daily calorie burn in non-step-based workouts (biking, swimming, rowing, lifting, elliptical, ect) - no that wouldn't be accurate (at least without manually logging those).
    If large part of your day was upper body movement while sitting (some type of factory work perhaps) - no that wouldn't be accurate.

    If your day is average - either sitting or walking as movements (chasing kids around house), and workouts are walking or jogging or manually logged if not step-based - then yes it has a chance at good accuracy (within that 5-10%).

    Caveat there is does it see steps you do correctly, and not massive amounts of bogus steps with big calorie burn assigned to them.
    And is the distance of those average pace daily steps correct.
