    Plumfoodie Paleo maintenance rocks!

    The calories burned is roughly correct, after all your body has to burn quite a few calories just to keep you alive. I think there's a setting where you can change how it estimates but can't remember where! :)

    I got a fitbit flex a few weeks ago and I love it, too! I've only made it to 10,000 steps once so far, but hopefully I'll make it again and again now that I know it can be done. Plus, my husband just got one, so I suspect that there'll be a lot of competitive walking in our household :)

    The calorie burn may well be correct if it has accounted for your basal metabolic rate which is the rate at which your body burns calories in order just to survive. . . I.e for your body to breathe and organs to work etc. The fitter you are, the more muscle you have, the higher your basal metabolic rate will be as your body has to use more energy and burn more calories to sustain your muscles :) hope this helps!

    My hubby bought me a flex, as a motivator, and I think it's fab linked it to MFP. I've been walking daily for 3 weeks but the scales haven't budged. i have stopped going to the gym, and just spend a few sessions on the TRX each week. Does it take a while to kick in? Or should I increase my steps?
