I LOOOVE fitday.com, I think its a great tool! If I am not mistaken, fitday does take into account your age, gender and weight. Thats something you put in at the beginning when signing up.
I do find somethings that are slightly annoying with the site when you look up foods particularly, chicken. When I look up chicken breast, if I am trying to choose either baked or broiled its usually buddied up with the fried category which is not always true. Fried is always worse, so I have a hard time beleiving those numbers. I find I have to do a ton of custom foods. Which is ok with me.
One thing I have yet to figure out, are the actual nutrition requirements. I would like to see a nutritionist sometime to see if I am actually eating what my body needs. On my "am I burning the calories i eat" report, I am burning on average 4000 calories and only taking in 1500. I have been having rapid weight loss which I thought wouldnt last beyond the first week or two so i think I need to make some modifications.
I am on average losing 1 pound a day?! I am trying to fix that so it will be long term, but I dont know where I am going "wrong". Not that I mind losing a pound a day, but I really want it off for good! Any Ideas? How does one interept some of these reports to aid with this weight loss journey?
