Why does't my Fitnesspal calculate extra calories earned from steps everyday the same? lbrjsjr88 — Jun 07, 2018 07:52AM PDT

Why isn't my exercise being added and calculated the same way everyday into my Mobile MyfitnessPal diary? One day I walk 12867 steps and get credit for 1094 extra calories. Now I walk 12116 steps and only get 652 extra calories.

Hi there,

How the integration will work is that you will see a positive adjustment only if you are projected to burn more than your MyFitnessPal Calories Burned, based off the current total Calorie burn from Fitbit. Your MyFitnessPal Calories Burned are composed of two things: your estimate of calories burned per day MyFitnessPal makes based off your profile information plus any added exercises. If an exercise is added manually or from a partner, the MyFitnessPal Calories Burned increase and the adjustment will modify itself so that calories burned are not double counted.

Details about the calculation of any adjustment can be viewed by clicking the small “i” next to the adjustment in your Exercise Diary (on the full website), or by tapping the adjustment itself in the Exercise Diary of the MyFitnessPal on the apps (you may need to tap the adjustment in the diary and then again on the next page depending on your app version). If you do not see a line that says Fitbit adjustment in the cardiovascular section, then there may be a problem with the sync. However, if you do see this line, then it should be syncing correctly, even if it says 0.

All the best,
Bruce
