    I would just ignore it. Figure out on your own how many calories you need for an average day and design your diet/bulk around that.

    I honestly give their guestimations no thought b/c they are so inaccurate.

    That would be your BMR, (you know, the number of calories it takes to live), not the number of calories you burn walking.
