By default, your Basal Metabolic Rate determined by the Mifflin St. Jeor Equation. If you wish to use a different value, you can enter a custom value.
Your activity level is an estimate of the calories you burn throughout the day beyond your basal metabolic rate (BMR), including activities of daily living and exercise. We recommend leaving the setting on the default Sedentary and logging your exercise activities separately by adding an activity in the diary. Another good option is to set your activity level to None and sync your account to a wearable activity tracker that counts general movement throughout the day.
Consider the following descriptions when choosing the activity level that is right for you:
Comatose or using an activity tracker which includes general activity.
Sedentary (BMR x 0.2)
Little or no exercise. You will burn some additional calories over and above BMR even for light activity such as watching TV, working at a desk, or sleeping. Use this setting if you are synced to a device that tracks workouts only (not tracking general activity).
Lightly Active (BMR x 0.375)
Basic daily living (sitting, eating, walking around the office or house). Light Exercise/ Sports 1-3 days/ week
Moderately Active (BMR x 0.5)
Moving frequently through the day (Construction work, stocking shelves, cleaning, etc..) and/or Moderate Exercise 3-5 days/ week
Very Active (BMR x 0.9)
Intense activity through the day such as manual agricultural work or competitive athletic training.
Set your own fixed daily value for calories burned due to general exercise
