i have an account on fitday and i did everything that i ate today, and all and i put everything in down to the box of gobstoppers i had as a snack after lunch and it says that i burn 2,700 calories a day and i take in around 1000. So that means that i burn about 1700 caolries a day? and i think 3100 calories is a pound and if that true ill burn off more than a pound every 3 days? that dosent seem right but maybe its just me please help

No this is not healthy. You will not lose a pound of fat every 3 days because a proportion of the deficit will be made up from breaking down your muscles. Your metabolism will most likely slow to a crawl and you will stop losing weight. You need to eat more and have less of a dramatic calorie deficit.

don't listen to fitday for your calories burned thing. Just use it to know your total calorie intake amount. Those stupid calculator things are very inaccurate. and if you're only eating 1000 cals a day you better start eating or you're gunna burn no fat and an ass load of muscle.

why would you trust fitday if it said you burned 2,700 calories a day? are you a construction worker who rides his bike to and from job sites?

^^ What they said. 1000 calories? Holy crap. My first meal this morning was 950 cals. How tall are you/ how much do you weigh?

I'd say do some serious reading around the boards.

You do know that calories are required for things other than physical activity, right?
