    I have to admit I've been fucking LOVING livestrong.com/thedailyplate.com to track my calories and help me figure out what foods I should be cutting and what I can 'afford' to eat in a day.

    The iPhone app is HELLA handy too.

    I highly encourage those who track and have an iphone to check it out.

    I've been tracking on Livestrong.com and using the iPhone app for a while. It's awesome.
    I recently decided to be a Gold member.
    Hope it helps with my fitness goals.

    Question about the livestrong iphone app

    I just downloaded the app for my iphone

    I've enjoyed putting in my food and workouts but I don't understand the display

    Daily Progress
    Daily Calorie Goal 1823 (seems pretty straight forward)
    Calories Remaining 1737 (I don't understand this one.-- see info below)

    Calories Consumed 1337
    Calories burned 1251
    Net Calories Consumed 86


    So I want to lose weight... If I put in my bike ride for tonight, the number of Calories Remaining will go up -- What does this mean? Also, am I right that I want the net calories to be in the negative? (Burned more than I took in)

    Real confused about this and appreciate any help.

    Calories Remaining: The difference between total calories used, and total calories needed.
    In your example, your Basal Metabolic Rate (google it) is 1823. Add 1251 to that because that's how many calories you burned with exercise. Then subtract 1337 because that's how many calories you've already consumed. Now to break even, you must consume another 1737.
    (1823 + 1251) - 1337 = 1737
