View Full Version : Fitday.com question

06-30-2009, 09:59 PM
Hi, im starting to use this website and in the "lifestyle" part, there's 5 options:
-Very Low Activity (Sedentary)
-Seated All Day
-Mostly Seated With Some Movement
-Standing Work
-Strenuous Work or Highly Active

Im actually seated the hole day except for when i go to the weightroom or have basketball practice or walk to the classroom. I think i should pick "Mostly seated with some movement", but that says that i burn 3000 calories just doin nothing... im not sure if im doing this correct. I calculated again in myfattranslator.com and i selected "active" phisical level and they gave me 3500 cals.

Im 6'1 at 200 lbs and 21 years old.

The main question is: what is my fitday.com activity level?

Thanks in advance!

Please ignore the calories burned portion of that site. It's completely useless information as everyone's metabolism is different, among 6 billion other biological factors. The activity level part is irrelevant.

I don't use anything on the site other than the food log either. All you really need to track your progress is a scale, the mirror, and a tape measure.
