Calorie Goal Broken in Ap

So for the past week I’ve been eating at maintenance thinking it was the goal for 1lb. I thought it looked off so at one point I checked my settings and it was set to 1lb per week. Fast forward to today and I’m thinking this dieting thing is a breeze, what if I aimed for lbs a week. Huge difference in calories, so I change back to 1lb a week and now my goal is different. I’m confused so I play around with the settings a few more times. The goal doesn’t always match the goal I set. It will change the goal in the settings but your daily goals won’t change. Very frustrating.

    Everybody has different caloric needs. If you know your base intake subtract 500 calories through food, exercise, or both. I find it better to set a caloric range between 1700 and 2000 calories this way I have wiggle room. I exercise about 2 hours per day and I adjust depending on the intensity of the workout. I love working out so I don't use it as a weight loss tool but it makes you a Better Butter Burner!
