Not Sure If I Should Log Exercise SmilinLadybug — Jan 21, 2017 11:20AM PST
While wearing my Fitbit....do I still log my exercise for the day into MFP..or do I count that exercise as extra steps taken?

Thank you for taking the time to post your question.
We recommend logging all exercise on MyFitnessPal only with the exception of walking/jogging/running.
The Fitbit is designed to best capture your movement through space, things like walking/jogging/running can be easily captured by the Fitbit device.
However, items like golfing, Spinning®, or rock climbing are best logged on MyFitnessPal.
When you log any exercise on MyFitnessPal, you will choose a start time and a duration. We then send that data to Fitbit who removes that time period from their data and replaces it with ours.

Hope this helps.
