Double counting calories with FB Charge 2 SaraBL15 — Oct 11, 2017 08:18PM PDT

If I manually enter my exercise in to MFP and wear my tracker during exercise, is that giving me double the calorie burn? Should I do one or the other?

Hello,

Thanks for posting your question with us.

We would suggest only manually entering exercise which is not “step based”. Anything step based like running will be tracked via the steps feature.

If your exercise has a harder time being tracked via steps, we would suggest manually adding these. The time and duration will chunk out the section of steps tracked by your Fitbit band and not double count your exercise.

Hope this helps to clarify,
Maximiliano
