Resting Metobolic Rate (RMR) joelzieve — Jan 08, 2017 04:53AM PST

When I complete my diary for the day, it says that if I continue with days like this, in 5 weeks, I'll weigh XXX pounds. I've only used the app or 2 days. At the end of day 2, I was right on target with the calorie goal, yet it said I'd be down 9 pounds in 5 weeks. So I'm thinking it must be estimating my RMR. But it's estimate is too high (I just had mine measured). Is there a way I can tell the app what my RMR is so that the 5 week estimate is accurate? Thanks!
