exercise tracking and adding calories to food jennyrose6 — Sep 06, 2019 01:36PM PDT
So I want my exercise tracked but I don't want the exercise calories added to my 1200 daily limit. Is that possible? I've been looking all over and can't figure it out. I want to eat to 1200 calories a day regardless of exercise or not.
