Carb Manager usually calculates your total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) based on the activity level and biographical information in your profile. If you consistently log exercise in Carb Manager, Carb Manager can automatically deduct energy (calories or kilojoules), or deduct energy and macros, from your daily totals based on the energy burned from active exercise. This enables you to consume more energy and macros and still maintain your goals, although if you’re trying to lose weight, you may meet your weight loss goal faster if you don’t consume the extra energy burned from active exercise.

Tip: If you track exercise with a device such as a Fitbit or an app such as Apple Health, sync a fitness device or app with Carb Manager so Carb Manager can import your exercise data and automatically deduct energy or energy and macros from your daily totals.

To automatically deduct energy, or energy and macros, when you log exercise, complete these steps.

  1. Go to Settings icon Settings.
  2. In My Settings, select App Settings icon App Settings.
  3. In the Macros Settings section, turn on Deduct Calories/Kilojoules When I Exercise.
  4. Optional: If you also want to deduct macros, turn on Deduct Macros When I Exercise.
    Note: The Deduct Macros When I Exercise setting appears only after you turn on Deduct Calories/Kilojoules When I Exercise.
  5. If you turned on the option to deduct energy (calories or kilojoules) when you log exercise, see Update your activity level and verify that your activity level matches your daily lifestyle and your intention to log exercise in Carb Manager. If you previously set a high activity level because you exercise and your daily activity primarily consists of exercise that you intend to log in Carb Manager, then change your activity level to Sedentary to ensure Carb Manager doesn’t count the energy that you burn twice.
