    @mshawski I use coconut aminos as a gluten free substitute for soy sauce in most things. (Actually I prefer the flavor.) If you have never tried it, I recommend it.

    Hi guys. I have a question. I was within my calories, but only with my exta exercise calories included. Does this still count as within my calories? I hope this makes sense...

    Exercise :Yes
    Tracked : Yes
    Calories : Yes?? (only if my exercise calories counts)

    A scale drop and a BMI drop! Yayyyyy!

    Thanks Terri!
    Caught the uptick, and down 3lbs from that.

    #Catching it right away is easier LOL

    Thanks again

    (The reason I posted this is turning a slow gain in maintenance is the equivalent of reaching your Goal Weight when losing.)♥️♥️♥️


    I’m celebrating!

    THIS!!!! And yes, you should be celebrating! Well done Maddie! <3

    Elsa, @koeitjiesa one of the great things about the UAC is that YOU get to determine if that's "allowed" or not.... some people eat back their exercise calories, and some do not. It's an individual preference. Does that make sense?

    Quote from the FAQ pin at the top of the group main board (where Introductions and What's On Your Mind Today are also pinned)


    11. If I exercise a lot, can I 'eat back' my exercise calories?

    Your calorie goal and calorie adjustments are entirely up to you.


    Yes your exercise calories can be eaten back, if that is how you define your personal calorie envelope. It varies from person to person for many reasons.

    How many you eat back and on a regular basis (or not) is also personal. Some people who have heavy energy exercise patterns are (hopefully) eating back enough to support what they are doing.

    With experience comes the knowledge whether where they take the "calories burned number" from is inflated or not and they may choose "50% of logged exercise credits is my personal upper calorie daily limit" or something like that.

    Others with smaller routine burns might choose to mostly ignore, but consider some (or all) an available infrequently-used drawn-on-the-day buffer. Like making a point to do an extra walk on a Family Gathering Day, knowing that there is going to be more-than-usual calories in a special supper.

    I am adding this to the What's On Your Mind Today so that others with this question are less likely to miss it, and other veterans can expand on the above.
