Why are negative adjustments capped at 170? evgenybrah — Nov 23, 2016 04:03PM PST
Hello. On the days when I am not moving, my TDEE as per IIFYM's TDEE calculator, and as per Fitbit is about 2350. MFP Puts it to around 2600. This is ridicilous. So anyways, I get it, MFP is horrible at estimating TDEE, so its ok, there is fitbit to correct it using negative adjustments. But unlike 1-2 years ago when it could add 300-400 to adjustments to penalize for inactivity, right now it seems to be capped at 170!. So why cap it? Its clearly wrong.
Here is a link to MFP screen (why is my goal 1600 to lose 2lbs/week ????) - http://puu.sh/sspl8/cd3e3569a3.jpg
Here is a link to fitbit screen where it shows estimated burn. - http://puu.sh/sspqV/571f47637a.jpg
So why doesnt fitbit penalize me more for inactivity. It clearly shows how much i can still eat on fitbit website, and its pretty accurate. But MFP caps it at 170...
