Since linking my account to track my steps from my nokia health app I am no longer seeing a calorie amount? Previously it was linked to my phone and it would give me a calorie total based on the steps recorded on my phone. It is picking up the correct step information from the nokia app but isn't allocating any calories??

Hey thanks for posting your question.
Sorry for any confusion regarding your calorie adjustment. The calorie adjustment is not showing your tracked exercise calories but rather the amount by which your total calorie burn for the day has exceeded our calculation for your day to day calorie burn. This means that your adjustment line will show as 0 until you have earned the extra calories in the form of an adjustment.
If you click on the Nokia Calorie Adjustment line in your diary, and then on Extra Calories Earned, we can look at the Nokia calories vs the MyFitnessPal Calories Burned. In order to see an adjustment the Nokia number must be higher. When you add a individual exercise entry, the program replaces your tracked activity and calorie burn with the calorie burn from that entry, to avoid receiving double credit for the activity. In your adjustment detail it gets added to the MyFitnessPal number, since it was not tracked by your Nokia device, reducing your Nokia calorie adjustment by the amount of your individual exercise entry. If this makes the MyFitnessPal number greater the adjustment will go back to 0 until the Nokia number once again passes it, however, if you look at your calculation at the top of the home screen, you will see that you are getting credit for the individual exercise entry there.
