Discrepancy between calorie goal and Carb, Fat, Protein goals. debrapeterman — Feb 06, 2019 02:08PM PST

My calorie goal is listed as 1,500 calories. (This seems rather low, but I know I will lose weight on even a little higher). However it shows my Carbohydrate goals to be 214 gm (this adds up to 856 calories). My fat goal as 74 gm (which adds up to be 666 calories). And my Protein goal to be 95 gm (which adds up to 360-380 calories depending on formula used). Add THOSE calories together and THAT total is 856+666+370 or 1892 calories.
Does the person doing these calculation KNOW how many calories in a gram of Carb, Fat, and Pro? It does not appear they do! Please address. Perhaps there is a registered dietitian who can correct these? Thank You. DP

Thank you for taking the time to contact us.

There seemed to be a glitch on our end. We went ahead and reset some things on our end. You should now see the correct macro goals listed in your account.
